On this day, October 4, 2012, we recognize and honour the lives of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls and support families who have been tragically touched by the loss of a loved one to violence. Vigils take many forms: a rally, a candle-light vigil, a workshop, a moment of silence, a walk, or a gathering of people to share memories and a meal.
More than 100 cities and communities are celebrating October 4th today! No other event in Canada brings so many Aboriginal communities and Canadian citizens together to specifically celebrate, honour and support Aboriginal women and girls.
There is great strength in unity! Click here to find out more and 2012 SIS Vigil Locations.
