So far this year McNallie has hosted a Zoom chat for local Girl Guides; spoken with young girls and their families on Black history within Canada; joined the Edmonton Police Service’s Commitment to Action committee meeting, which is open to the public; and been regularly present at local protests. She says, “To all the non-racialized individuals who read this, just keep supporting. Keep showing up. Keep speaking out. This fight is long from over, and if Black and Indigenous Peoples can keep fighting, you can, too.”
In 2016, the National Inquiry into Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls took place to examine and report on this violence against Indigenous women and girls. Since then, books have been published about the families affected by these crimes, as well as the stories of investigations that took place. These truths should not be forgotten.
