What are you doing on Sunday October 6th 2013?
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 Aboriginal women 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 Aboriginal women in Canada.
The Stolen Sisters Awareness Walk was created in May 2007 to raise national awareness to the disproportionate number of missing and murdered Métis, Inuit, Non Status and First Nations women 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.
Together we CAN make change!
EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO ATTEND

Every week I get notice of a new missing woman and the Government of Canada has actively fought against making serious effort to stop the murder and theft of the most vulnerable of our women.
Help us raise awareness of this very disturbing epidemic.
Over 600 women and counting…
