Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Liaison Unit
The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) Liaison Unit was established in September of 2017. The Unit’s primary function is to support families and communities who are impacted by missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, survivors of violence, Two Spirit and gender diverse people. An integral part of the Unit’s work is also focused on advocacy, building partnerships and relationships, prevention and awareness of all forms of violence towards Indigenous women and girls and Two Spirit and gender diverse people. A large component of the Unit’s work is also focused on healing, reclaiming the spirit and empowerment.
The MMIWG Liaison Unit is recognized nationally and internationally. Through the Units participation and attendance throughout the National Inquiry and their work involving MMIWG, the Unit has established expansive connections with families and survivors, leadership, elders, technicians, and experts across the country.
The MMIWG Liaison Unit has successfully hosted many community gatherings and events in Thompson, Winnipeg, Brandon, and many of the First Nation communities in Manitoba. The MMIWG Liaison Unit is often consulted regionally, nationally and internationally for the important work they are carrying out.
