The final report of the British Columbia Missing Women Inquiry will be released today, December 17th. Amnesty International continues to stand in solidarity with all the families whose sisters and daughters were murdered or who remain missing.
Today, we are joining a coalition of more than 25 Indigenous peoples’ organizations, women’s groups and frontline service providers to issue a joint statement of support for the families, to be released after the Inquiry report is made public.
The report itself is estimated to be about 1500 pages long. We will join with partners and allies to respond to the report itself once we have had more time to review the content in depth.
We are continuing to call for a comprehensive and coordinated response to violence experienced by Indigenous women across Canada.
