Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

I am a steadfast advocate on the issue of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG), as well as the larger issue of ending violence against women and addressing the more systematic, structural causes of violence.

The National Inquiry into MMIWG is a significant initiative the government has undertaken. I applaud this important move and have high hopes and dreams that this inquiry will bring justice so many have sought for so long. The inquiry must also move beyond studying systemic causes of violence—it must address them, too.
