A group of men and women walked from Centennial Park to City Hall in Fort St. John today in memory of missing and murdered aboriginal women.

The group did the march, as well as a balloon release, to raise awareness of the Sisters in Spirit Campaign.

Dave Terry, one of the organizers of today’s event, said he was compelled to get involved after seeing female relatives and friends die as a result of this type of violence.

The campaign represents an initiative by the Native Women’s Association of Canada to educate the public on racialized and sexualized violence against Aboriginal women and push for changes to the way government and community deals with those acts.
