Sisters In Spirit, October 4th
October 1, 2014, 3:43 pm
The first phase of the Sisters In Spirit (SIS) initiative began in 2005. NWAC hired a dedicated team of researchers and community workers who were committed to improving the safety and security of Aboriginal sisters in this country. They reached out to other Aboriginal women's organizations and long-standing partners to announce our plans to address this human rights issue. The primary goal was to conduct research and raise public awareness of the alarmingly high rates of violence against Aboriginal women and girls in Canada. Every year on October 4th, SIS vigils are held to raise awareness about the issue and remember those Aboriginal women and girls who have been murdered. To date, the SIS research proved that there are more than 520 missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls in Canada (NWAC website). As a member of the Dufferin/Caledon Domestic Assault Review, we are asking you to spread awareness about the issues and ask your colleagues, friends and family to take some time on October 4th to remember the Aboriginal women and girls who were murdered and those who are still missing. In an effort to take further action, please consider lighting a virtual candle by going to www.october4th.ca Each candle "is a beacon of hope and strength." Grandmother Moon You know all women from birth to death We seek your knowledge We seek your strength Some are STARS up there with you Some are STARS on Mother Earth Grandmother, lighten our path in the dark Creator, keep our sisters safe from harm Maa duu?
