Red Campaign; giving voice to Native Women of Canada

Cowichan Th'wulhalem
Posted January 14, 2020 from Canada

Native women have experienced Violence in Society, because they live under the Indian Act; they have no voice for justice, no voice for housing, no voice for family laws, and continue to be preyed upon by pedophiles, perverts, and men who view native women as sub-human, they are denied proper services for health care, and blamed for their own poverty by society. Many do not have a proper references for rent, or references for employment; many find it difficult adjusting from on-reserve to off-reserve life-style. Native women fall through the cracks in Canadian society, they are un-cared for, on or off reserve. Doctors fail them, police fail them, family courts family them. Poverty is forced under legislative acts. Let us give Native Women a Voice on Campaign Red; Please support and donate. Please share, care and ask friends to donate.  Your donations are needed today! We are tired of being a statistic, tired of pity, and tired of linear racialized sexual abuse and racism. Poverty is man-made, and its forced oppression and poverty limiting native women to even have a dream. https://www.gofundme.com/f/IndigenousWomen1st

Hi dear,
You must wear red indeed :-(. It's sad news to hear this. Every human have the right to be protected, care for, and loved. This is unfortunate!

I wish you the best in your fundraiser. I believe a good course must be supported. My very best wishes.
Hugs

Had no idea that Canada had a native population. Thanks for the enlightenment

Hi Sharon,
Hope you are doing well. It is quite annoying that the rights of the native women are still being violated. We pray that one day their rights will be recognized and appreciated. All the best with your fundraiser and we pray that it all works out for your and your native community.
