National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit People

0

Today is about building awareness of this ongoing harm and honoring those we have lost and their families. Today is also a day to commit to a path forward that ends this violence. Mark today by:

  • Wearing red and posting it to social media. Use hashtags such as #mmiwgawarenessday2021 #whywewearred and #nomorestolensisters.
  • Hang a red dress in your window or your yard.
  • If you are able, donate to an organization that works directly with MMIWG2S+ families such as Ka Ni Kanichichk

Today can be a triggering day for those affected by MMWIG2S+ loss you can connect with the MMWIG2S+ support Line 24/7 for free at 1-844-413-6649.  There is also the Indigenous-specific Hope for Wellness Helpline at 1-855-242-3310. They offer Indigenous crisis counseling including in some Indigenous languages.
