In recognition of the Mendocino County “Racial Equity and Justice Committee” (REAJC), our Mendocino County Tribal Partners, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office and all the organizations in Mendocino County that work to bring awareness to the lives of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People whose cases of sexual assault and violence are documented and undocumented in public records, Mendocino County proclaims May 5th, 2023, as Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and People Day.

When Supervisor Mulheren was approached by local tribal leaders she saw the Proclamation in front of the Board as an important opportunity to connect the County organization with our community to raise awareness about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and People.

In solidarity with the victims and their families of these tragedies, she encourages Mendocino County employees and the community to wear red on May 5th, 2023, to raise awareness, and post to social media using the hashtags #MMIWP #NotInvisible #MendocinoCounty.
