Indigenous women make up 16% of all female homicide victims, and 11% of missing women, even though Indigenous people make up 4.3% of the population of Canada. Gendered Violence against Indigenous women and girls is systemic and a national crisis that requires urgent, informed and collaborative action. Please wear red (if possible), gather and walk with us in honour of our Stolen Sisters. Help us spread awareness on this very important issue.

We will meet at the Dze L K'ant Friendship Centre Cultural Centre at 10:30am to gather and organize. Walk to Canadian Tire via Frontage Road with our signs and drums. Walk back to the Dze L K'ant Friendship Centre Cultural Centre for food and speeches.

Keep in mind the unpredictable weather and be prepared for cold and/or wet conditions.
