Sisters in Spirit 2019 Edmonton Walk and Vigil 

October 4, 2019

For years, our community has gathered to honour missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls while supporting their families. IAAW invites you to gather with us again on October 4, 2019 as we continue to demand action and raise awareness for all missing and murdered Indigenous peoples. The evening is part of nation-wide vigils. Doors open at 6:00 pm, indoor program and outdoor vigil.

Cyber Bullying

September 19, 2019

Do you feel targeted on the internet?

Gather with other Indigenous people and learn about how bullies use social media and tips for addressing it. The knowledgeable Native Counseling Services of Alberta are co-hosting the evening.

Public Transit

Date: TBD

Transit is a great way to get around, but many of us feel unsafe while using it. Learn about your rights on transit and how the City of Edmonton plans to keep you safe.
