October 4th: Honour our Stolen Sisters

October 2018 marks 14 years since Amnesty International released our “Stolen Sisters” report. In 2004, our report was ground breaking and helped to shine a light on a little known Canadian human rights crisis, and it promoted solutions identified by the Native Women’s Association of Canada and other partners in the Indigenous community.

October 4th has become a national day to commemorate the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit people.

Join First Nations, Inuit, and Métis parnters in taking action to end this human rights crisis.

There will be vigils and other events in Saskatchewan and we encourage everyone to provide your support.
