I am a Change Maker. Are you?
That is the challenge and opportunity posed to Canadians by a powerful new public awareness campaign launched on social media platforms by the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
In a series of thought-provoking images and videos, Canadians learn first-hand from family members who have experienced the deep loss of a sister, mother, daughter, auntie, cousin and friend. These families and supporters are volunteering their time and sharing their hearts to honour missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA people. They are inviting all Canadians to stand together and help create a strong foundation for healing, justice, and reconciliation.
The education and awareness campaign, developed by Eagle Vision and its visionary founder Lisa Meeches and her team, and was shot by renowned photographer Nadya Kwandibens.
A key mandate of the National Inquiry is to honour the truth through public education and awareness. The education campaign is part of our terms of reference to promote and advance reconciliation and to contribute to public awareness. The goal is to help the broader Canadian community understand the issue and the impact of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
