MMIWG2S+ Virtual Event
The Indigenous Women’s Anti-Violence Task Force (IWAVTF) and community partners have organized a virtual event to honour the lives of individuals taken away or who have gone missing due to the disproportionate levels of violence experienced in the region. The day also highlights the ways in which Indigenous women, girls and gender diverse individuals hold each other up and demonstrate our resilience, survival and hope to thrive. Join us on February 14th, 2022, via zoom at 1:30 pm, to share in this space.
We will come together to listen to leaders from Batchewana, Garden River First Nation and the Metis community regarding their commitments and how they are making a difference in their community. In addition, we will have Bridgette Perrier speak about her experience as a survivor of human trafficking. We will engage in community dialogue to share ideas regarding actions to prevent gender-based and colonial violence. We will also read the “Messages of Hope” that community members have shared to demonstrate our commitment to continuing our work to stop this violence.
