From the CBC Yukon:
“A community conversation, to learn more about a memorial project for missing & murdered Aboriginal women in Canada is set for tonight. Sandi speaks with organizers Krista Reid & Mary Bradshaw.”
A moving interview about how important this project is for so many communities dealing with Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women they have lost. This project hits close to home for many people.
