Overview

WINNIPEG – March 8, 2018 – To mark International Women’s Day, Manitobans for Human Rights, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, the Assembly of First Nations – Manitoba Region, and Peguis First Nation are proud to host an evening of inspiration, discussion, and advocacy. Director of the National Truth and Reconciliation, Ry Moran, will emcee this fundraising event to promote human rights for Indigenous women and the homeless in Manitoba.

Details

The event will lead off with a film screening of Us and Them, a documentary ten-years in the making about a woman who sets out to help four homeless people using the First Nations Medicine Wheel, but they end up helping her. The film has screened more than 50 times across Canada, including a Parliament Hill event for Canada’s MPs hosted by Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development.

 This will be followed by a keynote speech from Sandra Delaronde, Co-Chair Coalition for MMWIG - Manitoba Region advocating for the families of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG), and seeking changes to policing and the justice system to better serve Indigenous women.

 After the keynote, there will be a Q&A with Sandra Delaronde and Us and Them filmmaker, Krista Loughton. Althea Guiboche, Got Bannock, Jane Meagher, Past E.D. Red Road Lodge - Home for Recovery, the audience will be invited to ask questions and find out how to become involved in advocating for MMIWG and the chronically homeless.

 "Us and Them is a deeply visceral film that shows audiences the reality of life outside on our streets. One of the film’s participants has a sister on the MMIWG list and another sister who was murdered by police officers in Saskatoon, SK. These crimes affect families for life. We can’t stop advocating until Indigenous women are safe in our society.” -Krista Loughton

 To inspire advocacy for Indigenous women, we invite you to become involved with this important event on International Women’s Day.
