Walking along Simpson Street to remember the Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women

THUNDER BAY – The eighth recommendation from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. This Call to Justice pertains to human and Indigenous rights and governmental obligations:

1.8 We call upon all governments to create specific and long-term funding, available to Indigenous communities and organizations, to create, deliver, and disseminate prevention programs, education, and awareness campaigns designed for Indigenous communities and families related to violence prevention and combatting lateral violence. Core and sustainable funding, as opposed to program funding, must be provided to national and regional Indigenous women’s and 2SLGBTQQIA people’s organizations

NetNewsLedger is running all of the recommendations of The National Inquiry into Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women. #MMIWG – On National Indigenous People’s Day in 2019 NetNewsLedger was told in Thunder Bay that “We don’t talk about Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women anymore – It’s over.

It isn’t over, sadly it is continuing to go on and on.
