Day Twenty-Two: Planning to Attend Vigil

Sisters in Spirit Vigil
Tuesday, October 4th, 2011
6:30pm, Victoria Park, Regina 

Every October 4th, Amnesty International partners with the Native Women’s Association of Canada, KAIROS, the National Association of Friendship Centers, the Canadian Federation of Students and family members to call for an end to violence and discrimination against Indigenous women and girls in Canada.
These vigils are held to remember the lives of Indigenous women and to call for justice and action from the Canadian government to ensure the safety and protection of Indigenous women.
Amnesty International encourages everyone to participate in this year’s Sisters in Spirit Vigil in Regina, October 4th at 6:30pm in Victoria Park.   
If you would like to travel together with Fort Qu’Appelle people, you could join us at 4:30 at the Community Outreach for Chili and Bannock.
If you can’t come for Chili, but still want to travel together, we will leave at 5:15 from Community Outreach.
We will try to park together at Regina’s Central Public Library across from Victoria Park. There is free parking after 6:00pm.
If you can drive or you need a ride, please contact Sheena Koops 332.4343 (school) or 332.3023 (home).
