MMIR license plate now available

MMIR License Plate

Missing and Murdered Indigenous Day of Remembrance — which is Feb. 14 each year — honors those Indigenous relatives who are missing from the lives of their loved ones. But they deserve more than just one day.  

That is why the Minnesota Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives (MMIR) Office unveiled the design of the new MMIR license plate during this year’s event in Minneapolis. Fees paid by drivers who obtain a plate will be put into the Gaagige-Mikwendaagoziwag reward fund.

2023 Annual Report for the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives Office

2023 MMIR Office Annual Report Cover

While the Minnesota Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives (MMIR) Office has existed since 2021, this past year was the first time its team was fully staffed and able to begin work in earnest. 

What the MMIR Office has learned is that resiliency is a core concept behind every action they take. Team members have adapted to the unique circumstances of the growth of a new office. Through it all, they have unequivocally flourished at the challenge of employing all 20 mandates outlined in the 2019 Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women’s Task Force Report.

Review the activities conducted by the MMIR Office in the 2023 annual report. ​
