Equality means equality for everyone.
The CAFE Necktie Campaign – #IncludeMen:
Help us urge the federal government to include men and boys in the upcoming inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls. Lydia Daniels, from Long Plains First Nation in Manitoba, came up with the necktie concept after being inspired by the Red Cloth Ribbons Memorial campaign that was started to honour missing and murdered Indigenous women. CAFE is proud to join Ms. Daniels’ initiative and to have her support as we launch a series of events in various parts of the country. —>NECKTIE CAMPAIGN FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE
Join our press conference Thursday, March 31st at 11:00AM local time in Toronto and Edmonton!

-EDMONTON: Ezio Faraone Park (West side of the North end of High Level Bridge).
-MANITOBA: Lydia Daniels, who initiated this campaign, will support these events by hanging neckties.
Over 70% of missing and murdered indigenous people are men and boys and because of their gender they have been excluded from the inquiry.
