Support for: Walking Together: Ontario's Long Term Strategy to End Violence Against Indigenous Women
Since 2010, the government and Indigenous partners have worked hand in hand through the Joint Working Group on Violence Against Aboriginal Women.
"The alarming rate of violence and missing Indigenous women can't be swept under the rug if everybody is talking about it. This strategy encourages that discussion and takes action. Publicly supporting the research related to ending violence against Indigenous women, including human trafficking, keeps this issue on the radar."
