Victoria Park raises awareness around MMIWG on Red Shirt Day

Red Dress Day is on Thursday, May 5, 2022.
It is a day that calls for all Canadians to speak out on violence against Indigenous women, girls and gender-diverse people.
Today, Victoria Park High School hosted an assembly to honour and build awareness around Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Red Dress Day.
Red Dress Day honours the memories of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls across Canada. Métis artist Jaime Black helped 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.
The dresses are empty, to evoke the missing women who should be wearing them.
The Final Report on the Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls was released in June 2019. 

Please see the video below for more information on the event at Victoria Park.
