Way too much violence

An issue I learned more about on International Women’s Day:

Organizations across the country are calling for a federal action plan to investigate violence against Aboriginal women in Canada. 

In Canada,“Aboriginal women are 2.5 times more likely to be victims of violence than non-aboriginal women” (see recent article).

Here are some links/resources, take a look:

Amnesty International - No More Stolen Sisters!

The Native Women’s Association of Canada's community resource guide, "What Can I Do to Help the Families of Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women and Girls?"
