Sisters In Spirit Vigil

Wednesday October 4, 2017

11:00 am at the Welcome Totem in Village Common (Whistler).

 

Indigenous women face life-threatening, gender-based violence and disproportionately experience violent crimes because of hatred and racism.

Join thousands of people across Canada in helping draw attention to the issue and honour the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG) by joining the Whistler’s Sisters In Spirit Vigil on Wednesday, October 4th at 11:00 a.m.

The vigil will assemble at the Welcome Totem (in front of Starbucks) in Village Common. Speakers, both guests and the families of victims, will share their stories and their hopes for the future. The group will then walk down to Olympic Plaza, accompanied by the singing and drumming of the Women’s Warrior Song.

Vigil participants are encouraged to wear red in further recognition of the MMIWG.
