Women are strength and we are the backbone. We are the mothers, the sisters, the daughters. The need for knowledge building is for all of us in our respective location and places, our home territories and an acknowledgement of the crisis that is truly taking place in Canada as the National Inquiry for #MMIW travels hearing the stories of family members being taken and survivor stories.. many stories.. these stories, I should add, are an essential dialogue and have been missing for along time in the landscape of Canada.
The Red Ribbon Campaign for #MMIW has taken place all across Canada in cities and bridges. I’ve seen some areas in Thunder Bay. If you do see a ribbon, know it has a story for being there, to raise consciousness and awareness. To remember. A symbol of hope for all families.
