Sisters in Spirit Convoy 4 Action

In honor of Missing, Murdered, and Exploited Indigenous Sisters & Brothers, their loved ones and survivors.
Please join Missing, Murdered, and Exploited grassroots (non-funded) family-member /survivor advocates on Monday, October 4th 2021 for the Edmonton – amiskwacîwâskahikan (ᐊᒥᐢᑿᒌᐚᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ) Sisters in Spirit Convoy 4 Action.
Sisters in Spirt (SIS) background:
The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) launched the National Sisters In Spirit Campaign in March 2004 to raise public awareness of the alarmingly high rates of violence against Indigenous women and girls in Canada. In November 2005, the campaign became an initiative. NWAC believes we are in an urgent state of affairs with regards to the safety of Indigenous women and girls in Canada.
The Stolen Sisters Awareness Walk was created in May 2007, and was the first walk in the province of Alberta to specifically raise national and international awareness on the disproportionate number of missing, murdered, and exploited Métis, Inuit, Non Status, and First Nations women and girls in Canada.
Reports show that Indigenous women aged 25 -44 are five times more likely than other Canadian women (of the same age) to die of violence.
This Peaceful Vehicle Convoy is a unique event where family members, advocates, allies and survivors will come together while ensuring safe social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic (as per the Government of Alberta’s Restrictions on Gatherings). Join us as we continue to raise the alarm on the human rights crisis of Missing, Murdered, and Exploited Indigenous People (MMEIP).
****EVENT POSTER/MORE DETAILS COMING SOON! (location, convoy route, ways to participate in SIS virtually, spiritually, and from where you reside)****
Together we CAN make change! Take ACTION Together! No More Stolen Sisters & Brothers!
