MAY 5th, 2023
We need to stand together and walk with us on May 5th from the Band Office to Urban reserve to show our support and solidarity with Indigenous communities impacted by the MMIWG crisis. By walking together, we can raise awareness of the issue and honor the lives of the Indigenous women and girls who have been lost. We can also send a message to decision-makers that action is needed to address the root causes of violence and ensure that Indigenous women and girls are safe and valued in our society. It is only through working together as a community that we can create the meaningful change that is needed to address the MMIWG crisis and create a better future for all. So let us stand together, walk together, and work together to honor the lives of Indigenous women and girls and create a better future for all.
