On Jan. 29, the Department of the Interior, the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services held the first meeting of a White House task force to address the incidence of missing and murdered American Indians and Alaska Natives. The task force, co-chaired by Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt and Attorney General William P. Barr, is composed of federal officials charged with enhancing the criminal justice response, consulting with tribal governments on potential solutions and empowering native communities with information.

“President Trump is committed to addressing systemic challenges in Indian Country, and this task force will develop and implement an aggressive, government-wide strategy to combat the crisis of missing and murdered American Indians and Alaska Natives,” said Secretary David Bernhardt. “By working together and listening to impacted citizens and tribal communities, we intend to tackle these complex issues.”
