Sisters in Spirit Vigil

by Jessica Riddell

Please join us virtually on October 4, 2020, from 11am ET, noon AT, for the Maple League’s Sisters in Spirit Vigil.

October 4th is a day when we honour the lives of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Gender Diverse People, and look for opportunities to heal from this national tragedy. Please join us virtually on this important day to honour those we have lost and demand action so that this tragedy does not take any more Indigenous women, girls, or gender diverse people. There will be speakers with different stories and information to share and different suggestions for moving forward to a better future for all.

There will be speakers such as Lara Hartman and Elder Darlene Peters Copeland, who will share stories and information, as well as suggestions for moving towards a better future. After the speakers, there will be an open mic segment so that others can share their stories, ask questions, and have an open discussion.

Please wear red if you have it, so even though we may not be physically together, we can have solidarity for our vigil.

If you have any questions or would like to speak, please contact Acadia student Lara Hartman at 142839h@acadiau.ca.
