Please sign our petition and let’s send a message to Prime Minister of Canada Trudeau that we will not stand for inequality, inequity, social injustice, oppressive practices, discrimination of human rights, and disregard for human life. Together we stand Divided we fall make our voices heard and give voices to the voiceless. For our government’s commitment to conduct a national inquiry into the shocking levels of violence facing Indigenous women and girls in Canada.
Haven’t we as a nation learnt from the horrid mistakes of inequality, injustice in the past inquiries and government commissions, that the voices/voiceless of affected families and communities be heard, and that effective action be taken, both during the inquiry process and to implement the inquiry’s findings, as well as to implement the recommendation in the call to action.
We encourage your government to enact a comprehensive National Action Plan to end violence against women and girls. Both the inquiry and action plan must be adequately resourced to ensure they can truly address the diverse forms of violence and discrimination against Indigenous women and girls and get at the root causes of this violence.
