Rally planned in Vancouver to mark National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls
Dozens of people are expected to rally outside Vancouver City Hall Thursday afternoon to mark the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
Also known as Red Dress Day, it’s intended to honour the hundreds of women who never returned to their communities.
May 5 marks the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2Spirit+.
It was started more than a decade ago.
The red dress is a symbol of the violence Indigenous women face every day.
Wednesday’s event in Vancouver is being hosted by the Pacific Association of First Nations Women in partnership with the City of Vancouver.
“We encourage all levels of government to speak out about this tragedy occurring in our City of Reconciliation,” said the PAFNW in a release.
There will be speeches, traditional dancers and drummers.
