In recognition of Red Dress Day please join with the BIWOC Committee Brothers & Sisters in acknowledging such an important day. There are a couple events listed below you can participate in. You can also check your local City website to see events there as well.
Red Dress Day marks the National Day of awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirited People. May 5th, we honour those memories and support one of the Metis artist Jamie Black who helps inspire the red dress movement, where red dresses are hung from windows and trees to represent the pain and loss felt by loved ones and survivors. As a local Union we will continue to help raise awareness of the ongoing national crisis of racialized and gender based violence towards Indigenous people.
