Sisters in Spirit Day is the National Day of Action for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Gender Diverse People.
It is a day to honour those affected by the MMIWG2S+ crisis, to reflect on what we can do to end violence against Indigenous women, girls, and gender diverse people, and to support the work that people and organizations are leading in your community.
Did You Know?
The Saskatchewan Friendship Centre Movement actively works on a day-to-day basis towards addressing the impacts made by MMIWG2S+.
What Can You Do?
Read and adopt the 231 individual Calls for Justice
Read “Reclaiming Power and Place: The Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls”
Make it personal:
When reading the 231 Calls for Justice, instead of “we call upon all governments”, rephrase the calls to “we call upon ourselves” to help you reflect in which ways you and/or your organization may support people affected by the MMIWG2S+ reality.
Read and adopt the MMIWG2S+ National Action Plan:
Look for events and vigils in your area to attend and show your support:
If you are in Saskatoon, we encourage you to attend the National Annual Vigil with Proclamation and Flag Raising at City Square on Wednesday, October 4th, 2023, at 4:00 PM. Hosted by Iskwewuk E-wichiwitochik (Women Walking Together).
Wear red to show your support to MMIWG2S+ and their families and communities:
