Join us to discuss Highway of Tears: A True Story of Racism, Indifference and the Pursuit of Justice for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls by Jessica McDiarmid.
For decades, Indigenous women have gone missing or been found murdered along an isolated stretch of highway in northwestern British Columbia. Journalist Jessica McDiarmid investigates the devastating effect these tragedies have had on the families of the victims and their communities and how systemic racism and indifference have created a climate where Indigenous women are over-policed yet under-protected. Through interviews with those closest to the victims, McDiarmid offers an intimate, first-hand account of their loss and relentless fight for justice.
Highway of Tears can be found on our bookshelves. Additional copies will be available for checkout one month before the date of the program.
