Due to the high number of Native American women who are subjected to abuse of all kinds, including sexual exploitation and trafficking, Rep. Norma Torres (D-CA-35) and Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) have introduced Savanna’s Act/Close the Information Gap to Reduce Number of Missing and Murdered Native American Women (H.R. 4485 and S. 1942). This legislation would require the DoJ to improve its database and law enforcement and justice protocols with respect to missing and murdered Native Americans.
