Indigenous women and girls in Canada experience higher rates of violence than other women and girls in Canada. Our activism and solidarity with Indigenous activists over many years has helped to raise the profile of this issue, and we hope this raised profile will lead to concrete and lasting change. One way we hope change will be created is through the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, which commenced its work on September 1. Throughout the two-year National Inquiry, our solidarity with Indigenous women, families and communities is needed more than ever.
On October 4th, people across Canada showed their solidarity by attending vigils to honour the lives of indigenous women and girls whose lives have been lost to violence. Amnesty International will continue to stand in solidarity with Indigenous women and families throughout the process of the inquiry.
