Introducing the Law Ain’t Order Podcast & the Story of Selena Not Afraid (1/3/22)

January 3, 2022
Solidarity House Cooperative is honored to share the premiere episode of Law Ain't Order, an important new podcast by our friend and collaborator Emma Jane. 16-year-old Selena Not Afraid started the night of New Years Eve 2019 at home with her mom. When plans changed spontaneously, she decided to go out and see a friend. Selena's mom had no reason to think that her daughter wouldn't make it home safely. But like far too many other Native American women and girls, Selena went out for the night and the next day was reported missing.
