Research Discovery Week Four – Sisters in Spirit

Sisters in Spirit initiative is a group of Aboriginal women that raise awarness about violence against Aboriginal women and young girls. There is a high rate of violence against this group of individuals and Aboriginal women felt it would be important to bring this issue to a national level. Sisters in Spirit was formed in 2005 and has been working closely with families who’s love ones have been victims of this horrible crime to come up with ways to prevent this from happening again. This is an excellent initiative that is making an huge impact within the Aboriginal womans community and makes a positive difference within our society.
