30 Days of Justice 2011 – Families of Sisters in Spirit

August 26, 2011

Organized by Families of Sisters in Spirit (FSIS) * and our allies, ‘30 Days of Justice’ brings together families of missing and murdered Aboriginal women, grassroots Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal women and men, and the wider Ottawa community to raise critical awareness, support Aboriginal families affected by violence, and demand justice and accountability in the disappearances and murders of more than 600 Aboriginal women and girls in Canada in recent decades.
(*Families of Sisters in Spirit is a volunteer, grassroots, non-profit organization led by families of missing and murdered Aboriginal women based in Ottawa, Ontario, unceded Algonquin territory.)

Here, you will find information on the events that will be taking place during ’30 Days of Justice’. We will be updating this page as soon and as often as more details become available about the events that will be hosted by FSIS and our allies. This page will also be used to post some resources and links regarding our activities and the issues we work on. Stay tuned.
