End Violence Against Native American Women sign now

Dear Congressperson,

I am well aware of the injustices that occur daily on Native American reservations. 1 in 3 Native American women will be raped in her lifetime because our government has neglected to allot substantial protections to the Native Americans. I find it imperative that legislation be adopted in order to right the wrongs of history.

These changes can be carried out by first changing the Indian Civil Rights Act of 1968 which reads, "to exercise criminal jurisdiction over all Indians." By simply changing the word Indians to persons that Native Americans would be able to prosecute their own criminals.
After being given the power of prosecution the Tribal Police Force must be bolstered because the insufficient budget allocation to the Bureau of Indian Affairs is leaving many at risk. Additionally, legislation must be adopted that will allow Tribal Police to work in tandem with local and state authorities in order to provide a more comprehensive protection plan.

In the mean time, the US Attorneys office must start taking action on the cases forwarded to them in order to bring justice to criminals who commit crimes on reservations, whether they be of a sexual nature or not.
