15th Annual Strawberry Ceremony
Friday February 14th at 12:30pm-1:30pm at Toronto Police Headquarters

The annual Strawberry Ceremony is gathering again to demonstrate against the state’s complicity in the ongoing genocide of Indigenous women. The National Inquiry has released its final report since last year’s ceremony, but Indigenous women are still going missing and being murdered. This event invites everyone to join in ceremony with community groups such as No More Silence, Families of Sisters in Spirit and the Native Youth Sexual Health Network who continue their work to end gender-based violence and support community members and families grieving missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, trans and two spirit people.
