Institutions across Canada honour Red Dress Day with art installations, reflection

Postsecondary institutions across Canada spent time on May 5th to honour missing and murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people and stand in solidarity with survivors. At Brock University, students were encouraged to participate in a Red Dress Day Walk, while Niagara College hung red dresses in trees on their Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake campuses. Queen’s University installed 18 red dresses on campus light poles on May 5th to mark the beginning of The National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Gender Diverse People. The Alberta University of the Arts encouraged students to become involved by hanging a red dress in their yard, wearing red, or attending a vigil to honour those who are gone. Langara College installed red dresses to raise awareness of each stolen sister, while Royal Roads University hung red dresses in the trees along University Drive and encouraged community members to read and reflect on the 231 Calls for Justice.
