"Everyone in this room is here to lead the revolt," said DFL Rep. Mary Kunesh-Podein, co-chair of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Task Force. Above, Kunesh-Podein is seen in April at the Capitol.

DULUTH – Jessica Smith's story is woven into the fabric of centuries of trauma faced by Indigenous women. She stood before a theater of people Monday and told of the trafficking and abuse she faced - and how she found a way out.

"I have overcome all the things that were made to destroy me," said the University of Wisconsin-Superior student. "It's up to us to be each other's strength."
