Concerned about the suffering and injustice that Indigenous women face in Canada?
Become more involved in her story.
1. Sit With Her
You are invited to join Cheryl Bear and CBM for a special time of song and story, part of our She Matters 4 Canada Learning Tour to be held across Canada in 2017-18, to bring more understanding, for healing and reconciliation.
Attend. Listen. Learn. Bring a friend.
Look for other opportunities to meet and share.
Find other dialogue, events or ministries that may be happening in your area with your Indigenous neighbours. Contact your regional convention/union for more information.
2. Stand With Her
Join the #SheMatters4Canada Virtual Vigil.
Did you know that there were 1,181 cases of missing or murdered Aboriginal women in Canada (between 1980 and 2012, according to the RCMP)?
Grassroots organizations and the Minister of the Status of Women believe the number is well over three times that, close to 4,000.
In 2016, the Government of Canada launched a National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, as part of its reconciliation efforts with Canada’s Indigenous people. An interim report is expected by November 2017.
Stand with her, and all of our Indigenous neighbours who have lost loved ones.
