October 4th: Show solidarity with families of Stolen Sisters

Vigils are being held across Canada, including many communities in Saskatchewan, on October 4 to honour the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people.

As we get closer to October 4th we will share information about events that are being held in Saskatchewan.

Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people experience far higher rates of violence than other women and girls in Canada. Despite the federal government’s launch of the National Inquiry, government is not doing enough to end this human rights crisis.

Family members of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people, Indigenous women’s organizations, and allies come together every year on October 4 at vigils in communities across Canada to honour the lives of our Stolen Sisters—missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people. Vigils are an important opportunity for allies to show our support and solidarity with family members who are grieving the loss of a loved one while advocating for justice and an end to the violence.
