Welcome to


Native American Identity Empowerment Movement

Compassionate Action

An average of 40% of the women who were victims of sex trafficking identified as American Indian or Alaskan Native according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. When a group of people who are less than 3% of the population make up 40% of an issue, that indicates a systematic problem and calls for compassionate action.

Native American Identity Empowerment Movement (NAIEM) is an effort by Compassionate USA and Phenomenon210 to be a part of the solution. NAIEM works across generations with professionals, college students and high school students to spread the reach of compassion while advocating for our stolen indigenous sisters.

On Monday, March 4th at St. Mary’s University during the event America’s Shame: The Silent Tragedy of Indigenous Women, NAIEM was launched. As part of NAIEM, students will apply Compassionate USA's curriculum to the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women, thus actively learning how to affect systems for good by bringing compassion. Compassionate USA, Phenomenon210, Salelytics DIB/EBP and other like-minded professionals will collaborate to form a village of support around the students as they become “Phenomenal Compassionistas.”
