Stop Violence Against Aboriginal Women Action Group

No More Stolen Sisters Project

WHAT DO YOU WANT WINNIPEGGERS TO KNOW ABOUT MISSING AND MURDERED ABORIGINAL WOMEN?

As part of Showing Up, Speaking Out, Stop Violence Against Aboriginal Women Action Group (SVAAWAG), in collaboration with artist Leah Decter and with the support of Amnesty International are undertaking a public action project. Through this initiative we aim to generate public awareness on the issue of violence against Aboriginal women and stimulate individual action that impacts this issue.

How can you get involved?

  • Tell us what you think Winnipeggers should know about this issue. Contribute your statement via email, nomorestolensisters@mts.net, or join us at one of our public gatherings.  (See the calendar at http://www.showingupspeakingout.ca/get-involved for details)
  • Help plan details of the project at public meetings at aceartinc. (2nd Floor, 290 McDermot Ave). This includes determining locations for interventions, choosing statements for different aspects of the interventions, and generating additional activities.
  • Volunteer to participate in the public interventions. Please come to one of our public meetings at aceartinc. or contact us at: nomorestolensisters@mts.net if you are interested in participating in the action.
  • Spread the word!

SVAWAAG is a grassroots volunteer collective made up of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal women working to address the disproportionate level of violence against Aboriginal women and girls.

Showing Up, Speaking Out is a project of artists and community members working together to develop performance-based interventions about issues that matter to civic life.
