THEY SUPPORT INDIGENOUS WOMEN

iWhen Indigenous women in Canada were fighting to establish an inquiry into 2,500 missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada they had two groups of allies:

  • Human Rights groups and
  • Trade Unions.

The Canadian Labour Congress was one of the first to support an inquiry and they were honoured by Indigenous women at a ceremony when the inquiry was announced.
