AFN Supports Extension of National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

(Ottawa, ON) – Assembly of First Nations (AFN) Women’s Council Chair Chief Denise Stonefish released the below statement regarding the request to extend the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.

“The Assembly of First Nations supports the extension of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. In order to create the needed results, the National Inquiry must take a ‘families first’ approach and be granted the extension. To do less than this means that the safety and security of First Nations is not the priority it was intended to be when the National Inquiry was launched. If the federal government wants to truly stand with survivors and their families and support the journey toward healing and reconciliation, then it has to extend the National Inquiry, while accommodating any changes required to ensure the prevention of violence and the support of all families at risk.”

– Chief Denise Stonefish,
Chair of the Assembly of First Nations Women’s Council
