National Day of Action for MMIWG2S+
October 4 marks the day of action for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Gender Diverse People. We not only commemorate and honour those affected by this reality, but we also work on actions to take in ending violence against Indigenous women, girls and gender diverse people. AFCS has a list of the Calls for Justice that we currently act on Here: https://afcs.ca/site/uploads/2022/10/AFCS-CTA-CTJ.pdf

The National Inquiry’s Final Report reveals that persistent and deliberate human and Indigenous rights violations and abuses are the root cause behind Canada’s staggering rates of violence against Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA people.
