Implementation of the 231 Calls for justice within IIWR-MB
In recognition that ending gender-based violence requires the full implementation of the 231 Calls for Justice of the Final Report from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, and in light of the 16 Days of Activism, the IIWR-MB Board of Directors would like to share our ongoing work to implement the 231 Calls for Justice, gaps we have identified, and idea’s for how to address them.
We recognize that we are nothing without the support and guidance of our community and welcome guidance in this process. We invite you to read our report and share comments, feedback, or questions you may have. You may do so by reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org or any member of the Board of Directors.
IIWR-Manitoba is governed by a board of volunteers elected from the membership at the Annual General Meeting. Membership in IIWR-MB is open to all people and organizations supportive of gender equity.

Members at Large
There are many ways for members to make a contribution to the work of IIWR-MB.
We encourage participation by all our members on committees, if they wish, or to represent IIWR-MB in community activities.

An example of outside representation would be sitting on the Winnipeg UN Safe Cities Steering Committee.
