Not Invisible Act Commission, Haaland to hold Flagstaff for hearing

Jenni Monet/PBS News Hour

The Not Invisible Act Commission and Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland will hold a hearing in Flagstaff this May for those impacted by the Missing and Murdered Indigenous People crisis.

The commission is tasked with developing recommendations focused on improving intergovernmental coordination and establishing best practices for state, tribal and federal law enforcement to better combat the epidemic of missing persons, murder and trafficking of Native Americans.

They’re holding hearings in selected communities across the country that they say are most impacted by the crisis, including Flagstaff, Anchorage, Albuquerque and Billings, Montana.

The hearings will include panel discussions and a public comment period.

An exact date of the Flagstaff hearing has yet to be released.
