Today the Canadian Feminist Alliance for International Action (FAFIA), Canada Without Poverty, and Dr. Pamela Palmater ("FAFIA & Partners") publicly released their final oral and written submissions to the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls ("the Inquiry"). The submissions include recommendations to the Inquiry that call for an immediate, crisis-level response to the violence perpetrated against Indigenous women and girls in Canada.

Lara Koerner Yeo, a Cavalluzzo associate, worked with FAFIA & Partners on the submissions. They provide a critical analysis of how the interlocking forces of racism and sexism have fueled a crisis of violence against Indigenous women and girls that is deeply rooted in Canadian society. It is an honour to work alongside Indigenous feminist advocates and their settler allies in this important work to combat and end the violence.

FAFIA & Partners provided these submissions to the Inquiry in December when the Inquiry formally concluded its Truth Gathering Process on December 14, 2018. The Inquiry Commissioners are expected to submit their final report and recommendations to the Government of Canada in April 2019.
