~ LOCATION: WATERLOO TOWN SQUARE ~
October 4th is a day where we honour the lives of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and 2 Spirits (MMIWG2S). The violence experienced by Indigenous women, girls, and Two Spirits in Canada is a national tragedy. We must take the time to give thanks to the families who are our reason for demanding continued action.
The October 4th Sisters In Spirit (SIS) Vigils are powerful movements of social change. The number of SIS Vigils has grown from 11 in 2006 to an impressive 212 vigils in 2017.
Family members, Indigenous community members, and concerned citizens gather for a vigil every October 4th to honour the memory of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. Vigils take place in communities across Canada as well as internationally. These gatherings serve to raise awareness and to provide support to families who have lost a loved one.
