DULUTH, MN - Hundreds draped in red hit the streets in downtown Duluth Friday to bring awareness to the invisible epidemic of 'Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women'.

Family and friends of those impacted by this epidemic of violence, along with many community members hit the streets to raise their voices in remembrance of those lost and to try to stop it from happening to anyone else.

Native Lives Matter Coalition is among advocates that originally started the march because they didn't think anyone was listening to their fears over the growing number of cases against women in the Native community.

Survivors and families directly impacted by the violence lead the march.

We interviewed a legal advocate with the American Indian Community Housing Organization (AICHO), one of 19 hosts listed on the march's Facebook event page, about the epidemic Friday.
