Crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls needs action, now
What would we demand of municipal, provincial, and federal governments if 2,000 white women were killed? How about we do nothing, like we are doing about the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls? The levels of racism underpinning this Canadian collective refusal to act is breathtaking.
