‘we have cried enough’ – An Action Plan to Address Racialized, Sexualized, Violence Directed Toward Aboriginal Women

by NationTalk on July 22, 20081191 Views

FOREWORD

This project encompasses the concern for the deaths of all Aboriginal Women in Canada although centers on the City of Edmonton and Edmonton Police Service within the province of Alberta. Edmonton has received national attention for serial murders that have been committed in the area. Unfortunately a high number of Aboriginal Women are victims of this crime spree, which heightens the need for projects such as this one.”Canadian officials have a clear and inescapable obligation to ensure the safety of Indigenous women, to bring those responsible for attacks against them to justice, and to address the deeper problems of marginalization, dispossession and impoverishment that have placed so many Indigenous women in harm’s way.” Stolen Sisters – A Human Rights Response to Discrimination and Violence Against Indigenous Women in Canada (October, 2004).

The objectives of the project are:

– To develop an Edmonton-specific action plan to implement applicable recommendations of the Stolen Sisters Report
– To develop close relationship with natural allies to lobby for changes
– To lobby for policy change within government and city based agencies
