OCTOBER 4, 2017 - October 4th Vigils: A Movement for Social Change

The Human Rights Research and Education Centre is pleased to join the Native Women's Association of Canada's movement as part of the:

October 4th Vigils

"October 4th is a day where we honour the lives of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). The violence experienced by Indigenous women and girls in Canada is a national tragedy. We must take the time to give thanks to the families who are our reason for demanding continued action.

Family members, Indigenous community members, and concerned citizens gather for a vigil every October 4th to honour the memory of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. Vigils take place in many communities across Canada as well as internationally. These gatherings serve to raise awareness and to provide support to families who have lost a loved one." - Source: NWAC Website.
