Native Women’s Association Expresses Support to Men’s Advocacy Group

The Native Women’s Association of the Northwest Territories has recently expressed their endorsement and support for a similar advocacy organization.

The NWANWT engages in fierce advocacy and healing programming for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. Violence against Indigenous women in Canada is an ongoing crisis deep-rooted in the nation’s colonial history. Despite numerous policies and programs developed to address the issue, Indigenous women continue to be targeted for violence at disproportionate rates.

The group also believes that men will play a vital role in healing these families and communities, which is where the Northern Brotherhood of Men comes in.

The Northern Brotherhood of Men is a community-based grassroots movement raising awareness and offering practical support. The group features various speakers and events that help men be more supportive of women and who will also become allies in fighting violence against women.

The group encourages men to take action against violence when you see it, speak up when you hear violent or oppressive language or comments, and learn about myths and bust them when someone is speaking to them.

The group meets every Tuesday and Thursday at the Tree of Peace Friendship Centre from 7pm to 9pm, and is open to all men, regardless of background, race, sexual orientation, or personal politics.
