Solidarity Campaign

Solidarity Campaign

For the first time, international human rights bodies are investigating the disappearances and murders of Canada’s Aboriginal women and girls. FAFIA, with the Native Women’s Association of Canada, has been instrumental in bringing these human rights violations to the attention of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women. These international human rights bodies will release their findings in early 2015. We invite you to learn more about this issue and get involved with FAFIA’s Campaign of Solidarity with Aboriginal Women.
