What is Safe Passage?
Safe Passage is a community-driven, trauma-informed, and survivor centered initiative created by the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) that tracks cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, transgender, gender-diverse, and Two-Spirit people (MMIWG2S+), monitors ongoing safety concerns, provides distinctions-based safety resources, educates the public and media about the MMIWG2S+ genocide, and commemorates and honours our stolen loved ones.
This project is the ﬁrst of its kind, led by Indigenous peoples for Indigenous peoples, that documents the legacy of systemic violence that creates and maintains the MMIWG2S+ genocide, while also holding space for MMIWG2S+ families and survivors to have their stories be heard, believed, valued, and shared on their own terms
With a holistic and trauma informed national MMIWG2S+ database, research and educational tools, and culturally relevant support and care, Safe Passage seeks to inspire a transformational change. Together, we can end the MMIWG2S+ genocide and restore Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people’s place in the world as sacred, loved, and honoured members of their communities.
