Sisters In Spirit Vigil

Today vigils were held all across Canada to honour nearly 600 missing and murder aboriginal women and girls. In Ottawa a vigil was held on Parliament Hill, where the many speakers called on the Government of Canada to launch a national inquiry and address the root causes of violence against aboriginal women.

CFUW stood in solidarity with the Families of Sisters in Spirit and the Native Women’s Association today to show our support. We too will continue to call on the federal government to bring an end to this national tragedy.
