The Sarnia Native Friendship Centre hosted the annual Women’s Memorial March this week, to honour missing and murdered Indigenous women.
“We were very, very proud, and very honoured to have our sisters and allied with us,” said program manager Tracy Leblond.
The March began just after 9 a.m. Tuesday at the centre and included a flag raising and prayer at Seaway Centre Park, and speakers and a women’s song at Sarnia City Hall.
“There is a lot of pain and unanswered questions,” said Leblond. “When one of us hurts, we all hurt.”
The No More Stolen Sisters movement is a human rights response to discrimination and violence against Indigenous women in Canada.
