Sisters in Spirit

The Sisters in Spirit (SIS) campaign was launched in March 2004 in response to the alarming levels of violence against Aboriginal women in Canada. The Native Women's Association of Canada (NWAC) feels that authorities have failed to acknowledge or respond to the reality that a large percentage of Canada's missing and murdered women are Aboriginal. The estimated number is 500, yet it may be as high as 1,000. That's 500 to 1,000 mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, and nieces. The numbers cannot even begin to speak of the heartbreak. Take the time to inform yourself and others about the SIS campaign. Visit www.sistersinspirit.ca.
