Missing Women In America

What A Day - September 23, 2021 - 23:02

In addition to Gabrielle Petito’s tragic murder, we discuss the horrific rates of people of color who’ve gone missing in America. For example in Wyoming, where Petito’s body was found, 710 Indigenous people went missing between 2011 and 2020, and over half of them were women. In COVID news, President Biden pledged to donate 500 million vaccine doses to lower income countries. The FDA also authorized a Pfizer-BioNTech booster vaccine for people 65 and older and for those at risk of severe disease. And in headlines: nearly 1,000 Haitian migrants in Del Rio, TX, were released into the United States, bipartisan Congressional negotiations on a sweeping police reform bill broke down, and Trump filed a lawsuit against his niece and reporters at The New York Times.Show Notes:Wyoming Department of Victim Services: “Missing and Murdered Indigenous People” – https://wysac.uwyo.edu/wysac/reports/View/7713Associated Press: “#NotInvisible: Why are Native American women vanishing?” – https://bit.ly/3i0H5UBNPR: “With A Spotlight On Gabby Petito, The Parents Of 2 Missing Black Men Call For Action” – https://n.pr/3zCPt2yBlack and Missing – https://blackandmissinginc.com/NY Times: “Pressure Grows on U.S. Companies to Share Covid Vaccine Technology” – https://nyti.ms/39rlGznFor a transcript of this episode, please visit crooked.com/whataday
