Sisters in Spirit Day is a day we honour the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQ+ peoples (MMIWG2S). In 2021, the rate of gender-related homicide of Indigenous victims was more than triple that of gender-related homicides of women and girls overall.
Join the Office of Indigenous Initiatives, Student Health and Wellness, and the Office of Human Rights and Equity for a Tea & Chat to honour the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQ+ peoples, learn about the 231 Calls for Justice from the National Inquiry into MMIWG2S, and implement a Call to Justice within your own life.
The Office of Indigenous Initiatives will be having a sacred fire on October 4th to allow for the community to gather, talk, remember, and hold vigil.
- Sacred Fire Date: October 4th, 2023
- Time: 9 AM - 4 PM
- Location: Tipi (behind Simcoe Hall)
