"October 4th is National Day of Action for MMIWG2S. Today and everyday, we honour the thousands of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people. ❤️ There are 231 Calls To Action in the TRC Report that need to be addressed. Please take the time to read these Calls To Action.

We encourage everyone to read the Calls to Action, the action plan, and the ongoing criticism of the process from Indigenous women and consider how you might support the movement to end the genocide of Indigenous women and girls in Canada.
