SFU Advocacy For Men & Boys is pleased to welcome Dr. Adam Jones for his 2nd presentation on behalf of our club. He will give a presentation on the need for missing and murdered indigenous men to be included in the national inquiry.
There has been a lot of recent focus in the media on the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women, and rightfully so. However, it is troubling that no space in the discourse has been reserved for the status of indigenous men. Indigenous men are murdered at more than twice the rate of that of indigenous women. Furthermore, no funded research has been directed toward investigating the statistics on missing cases.
