The Question
What research is the government conducting to address the epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls?
The Background
As of March 1, 2015, there are almost 1,200 missing and murdered indigenous women (MMIW) currently accounted for in Canada. The actual number is unknown and could be significantly higher.  See below for more information.
Your Letter to Federal Ministers
Dear Ministers and Members of Parliament,

What  research is being conducted by federal agencies to investigate the epidemic of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls? Canada’s best social scientists, historians, and policy analysts are conducting federally-funded research to examine the impact of colonialism, assimilation, and residential school systems on Aboriginal peoples, factors that experts agree have led to inter-generational trauma and social fragmentation. What government research is being conducted to assess the social, economic, cultural, and historical factors that are putting Indigenous women and girls at such disproportionately high risk of injury and violence? What strategies is the government considering to develop a more effective, culturally sensitive, historically informed, long-term research program to address the social issues affecting First Nations, Metis and Inuit in Canada, both on and off reserve and in urban areas?

I am writing this email as part of Write2Know (http://write2know.ca) a letter-writing campaign that aims to mobilize public awareness and inquiry into federal research programs. We want to let you know that we value federal science and scientists, and that our questions arise out of genuine concerns about the health and well-being of Canadians.

We remain concerned about the legacy of constraints on access to federal scientists and the results of their research, the elimination of essential research programs, and the closure of libraries and archives. These constraints and closures have impacted what Canadians can and cannot know about the health of their bodies, communities, and environments. We are hopeful that a new government will address our concerns.

I look forward to your response.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]
