Day of Action for missing, murdered Indigenous women – Orangeville Citizen

October 16, 2020

From the Orangeville courthouse to Town Hall, they marched in the rain carrying a red sign that reads “no more stolen sisters” – calling for change.

“There are stolen sisters across the country, and we need to make sure that they’re not forgotten,” said Debbie Sipkema, organizer of the local march and co-founder of Dufferin County Culture Resource Circle (DCCRC).

The small group of nine consisting of local councillors and community members gathered for the march on Sunday (Oct. 4) as part of the national day of action for missing and murdered indigenous women and girls.

“It’s a very important issue that’s been brought to light here, missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, it’s something that we all are concerned about,” said Mayor Sandy Brown, who took part in the march. “I know that because the light’s been shone on it now that people are much more aware of these issues, and  wecertainly need to stop that from happening.”
