Red Dress Day Raises Awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Canada

May 4, 2024

Red Dress Day is observed on May 5 each year to raise awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two Spirit+ people in Canada. This annual remembrance traces its roots back to the REDress Project initiated by artist of mixed ancestry Jamie Black in 2010. Since then, it has evolved into a nationwide movement.

Red Dress Day is an opportunity for us to honour those who are dearly missed by remembering their names, talking about their lives, and holding space for the people who love them.

The Nova Scotia Federation of Labour stands with the families of the missing and remember their loved ones.

As we mark Red Dress Day, we stand in support of the families of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and Two-Spirit+ people and their communities.

We need to continue press governments to address the issues raised in the Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
