THUNDER BAY – The Walk4Justice is a nonprofit organization that was created by donations and volunteers and has existed since January 2008. Gladys Radek and Bernie Williams co-founded this group to raise awareness about the plight of the far too many missing and murdered women across Canada. Supporters consist of family members, who have lost their loved ones across the nation. Grassroots women and men from all walks of life have joined in efforts to demand justice, closure, equality and accountability.
More info on the group can be found on their website: www.fnbc.info/walk4justice
Here is the latest report from Winnipeg on the Walk4Justice:
Hello everyone, So sorry we have had very limited internet while we are traveling.
The walkers have arrived in Winnipeg and greeted by many of our grassroots supporters and family members. Bernadette Smith sponsored the walkers with a room at the Best Western for three nights and the Canadian Human Rights Museum sponsored 2 more rooms for the walkers, as well.
Thank you so much! Thunderbird House is hosting a Sweat and feast, for us and like minded people today at 3:00 p.m., feast at 5PM.
We have the honor of Thunderbird House doing everything they can to make all our walkers feel welcome and comfortable in this Treaty 1 Territory.
Thank you all for your invaluable support.
Met with Ann McGuire who is helping us coordinate with our sister Sharon Johnson and ONWA to prepare for our arrival in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Henri Chevillard ahs been helping immensely by coordinating with all the groups involved with our stay in Winnipeg and escorting us through the city. Tomorrow is a big day with an all day event called No Stone Unturned which is organized by Berndatte Smith.
We are truely gratefull for all our friends, family and supporters who have acknowledged the walkers efforts in raising awareness about our loved and valued Murdered and Missing Women.
We have to run out the door right now and I will try to get on line again later to fill in the days events.
Pictures will be coming soon.
Thank you all for your support, donations and kind offers for accomodations as we have progressed. If it were not for all of you, our walk would not have succeeded this far.
Our humblest thank you for helping us continue our fight for justice!
What do we want? JUSTICE! When do we want it? NOW!
Love you all! In solidarity,
Gladys, Bernie and all the walkers
