On Thursday July 30th, Gunargie O’Sullivan will host a two-hour live broadcast from the K’ómoks band hall on Vancouver Island from 4 to 6 pm Pacific Time. Featuring music, live interviews with local and national organizers, volunteers, and those who work with youth to keep women safe, and support the families of missing and murdered women. CiTR, along with CJSF 90.1FM, will air this special broadcast in honour of the 1,181 missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls across North America.

The Walking With Our Sisters (WWOS) Commemorative Art Installation will be displayed from July 31 to Aug. 15 at the K’ómoks Band Hall.

The memorial installation features 1,810 pairs of handmade moccasin tops created by more than 1,400 people in support of communities mourning the loss of missing and murdered aboriginal women. The collaborative art piece remains intentionally unfinished to draw attention to the injustice of a stolen life. The K’ómoks Band Hall is the first venue in British Columbia to showcase this international touring event.
