Vigil taking place for Murdered and Missing Indigenous People in Prince Rupert

A local group in Prince Rupert will be holding a vigil to honour Murdered and Missing Indigenous People.

The Indigenous Mothers say that the vigil is to show solidarity with marches happening in cities like Vancouver and Prince George.

Patrika McEvoy is one of the organizers along with Mary Hill and Symbia Barnaby.

McEvoy says the vigil will offer a safe place for the families that were impacted by the loss of loved ones.

McEvoy says this is the first year that this will be happening in Prince Rupert and they are working on more projects like an action plan to make the community safer.

McEvoy says she was personally inspired to take action by the case of Alberta Williams, who was murdered in 1989. Her body was found outside of Prince Rupert a short time after she went missing.

The vigil will be taking place outside of the Civic Centre by the bridge between 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Tuesday.

More details about the vigil and The Indigenous Mothers can be found here.
