Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls
November 8, 2022 7 pm to 8 pm (1 hour) Online: Zoom
Myrna LaPlante and Darlene Okemaysim Sicotte are co-chairs of Iskwewuk E-wichiwitochik (Women Walking Together).
Iskwewuk E-wichiwitochik is a coalition of women and men, some representing different groups, activists, academics, and the grass roots which works to create awareness, and keep the memory alive, of missing or murdered Aboriginal women through providing moral and direct support to families, increasing awareness in the political forum and working with other organizations and programs that are concerned with prevention of violence against women. We work at raising awareness and prevention through education and political action to the systemic nature of inter-locking issues, such as racism, classism, elitism and colonization which contribute to violence against women; specifically aboriginal woman. Iskwewuk E-wichiwitochik also does this work by being a network of women and groups that work with Aboriginal women to find social justice and peace. Register for this meeting:
