Red Dress Day


What is the meaning behind the Red Dress?

“The spirits of the missing or murdered women and girls stand with us here today, giving us courage, strength and clarity — leading us forward on the path to REclaim our sovereignty as Indigenous women.” Jaime Black, Metis artist.

Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and Two-Spirit People (MMIWG2S) is a human rights crisis of gender-based and racialized violence in Canada.

Jaime Black began the REDress Project in 2010, where she had gathered and hung hundreds of empty, red dresses to represent the missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada. Now the red dress is a national symbol to bring awareness to the human crisis issue. People are encouraged to hang a red dress outside their house on May 5th, so that passerbys may wonder why, and take it upon themselves to educate themselves about the issue.
