Welcome to the Sisters In Spirit Candlelight Vigil!
For years, communities have pointed to the high number of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls in Canada. As part of our commitment to the issue and to the countless families who are still in need of justice, NWAC is a lead organizer in Sisters In Spirit Vigils, a national movement that encourages concerned citizens and Aboriginal community members to gather on October 4th.
We gather to honour our lost sisters and their families. We gather to show we are a united front. We gather to shed light on a crisis that affects every Canadian. We gather to pressure all levels of government to act and ACT NOW! We invite you, your organization and your community to join with us in solidarity every October 4th.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
This Sisters In Spirit Candle Light Vigil was created by the Evidence to Action team of the Native Women's Association of Canada (NWAC).
'Evidence to Action for our Sisters In Spirit'. This project has been funded through Status of Women Canada, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) and the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE).
