Ending Violence Against Indigenous Women
Ending Violence Against Indigenous Women:
an Awareness-Raising Fundraiser for the Native Women's Shelter of Montreal (NWSM)
Friday, Nov.29th, 6:30 PM
Thomson House Ballroom, 3650 rue McTavish
$15 Tickets include performances by Moe Clark (our MC for the evening) and Odaya,
Dinner, Speakers and a Raffle!
*Tickets are available at First Peoples' House, 3505 Peel Street*
If you would like to support NWSM but are not able to attend,
online donations are always welcome at www.nwsm.info
The 3 main aims of the event: 1) To raise awareness about violence against Indigenous women in Canada. 2) To celebrate the activism of groups such as the Native Women's Association of Canada (NWAC) whose tireless work has brought this issue the attention of international bodies such as the United Nations, which are now taking action. 3) To highlight the importance of work at NWSM and within other community groups who directly support women who've survived or are surviving violence.
This community-building event is brought to you by the volunteer based NWSM fundraising committee in partnership with the McGill Social Work Association of Graduate Students (SWAGS) and the Aboriginal Law Students Association at McGill University.
