May 5, 2021: National Day of Awareness for MMIW

May 5, 2021 is the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ (Two Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual plus) people, known as Red Dress Day in Canada. On Red Dress Day, we reflect, grieve, and continue our work together towards ending this ongoing national tragedy. "May our missing mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties, nieces and friends feel our breath on their faces from all of the four directions. May they inhale our love, capture our strength and find their way home. May the ones in Spirit World watch over us and know they are missed."
