Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls, an apology

{ Please learn more about the ongoing work of this important campaign: Search #MMIW }

Dear Community,

We, the team at Wayzgoose Kitsap, would like to issue a public apology for the graphics used in our spring 2023 fundraising campaign. We understand that they bore a striking resemblance to the Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls campaign (#MMIW), and we recognize that this is completely unacceptable.

We take full responsibility for this mistake, and we deeply regret any harm or offense caused by our actions. We understand the gravity of the issue of Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women, and we acknowledge the importance of this campaign and the work of the advocates who have been fighting for justice for these women and their families.

We want to assure you that our organization fully supports the mission of the Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women campaign, and we are committed to doing better in our future efforts to support and uplift Indigenous communities. We are taking steps to review our internal processes and ensure that our organization is actively engaging in cultural humility and respect.

We hope that our sincere apology and commitment to doing better will be a step in the right direction in terms of repairing damage done, and also highlighting this important issue and drawing attention to the vital work of the MMIW movement for the WK friends and followers.

We value the trust of our community and the importance of being accountable for our actions. Once again, we deeply apologize for our error and any harm caused. We will continue to listen, learn, and do better in our efforts to support and uplift Indigenous communities.
