No More Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls!
Sisters in Spirit Vigils
Monday, October 4 — 2:00 pm EST
Organized by: Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC)
NWAC’s annual Sisters in Spirit vigil will be held virtually this year. The association writes: “October 4th is a day when we honour the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and gender diverse people, support grieving families, and create opportunities for healing. The violence experienced by Indigenous women, girls and gender diverse people in Canada is a genocide. United, we will demand action on an issue that impacts us all!
“In light of COVID-19, this year NWAC will hold a live-streaming Virtual Vigil on October 4, at 2pm. The webcast will be streamed from our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/NWAC.AFAC
NWAC also states that “The families will be sharing their stories of loss. This may be traumatic for those who have also experienced violence or loss. We will post a list of support lines at the end of the Vigil in case you need to talk to someone.
“Make sure to RSVP to the event to get a notification when it starts. For more information and other ways to show your support, visit: www.nwac.ca/event/sisters-in-spirit-virtual-vigil
