Native Women’s Association of Canada speak at UN
President of the Native Women’s Association of Canada, Dawn Lavell-Harvard, was invited to join the sixtieth session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, UN headquarters in New York City.
Harvard joined an esteemed panel of Indigenous women for a special side-event sponsored by Canada to examine the underlying factors contributing to Indigenous women and girls’ abuse, including the longstanding impacts of colonialism, racism and sexism.
Panelists spoke collectively to the ongoing need to provide holistic, Indigenous-led approaches to addressing the ongoing discrimination experienced by Indigenous women and girls, including violence and abuse.
