May 5 is the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit people (MMIWG2S) in Canada, also known as Red Dress Day. Originating as an artistic response, red dresses symbolize the tragedy of over 1000 missing and murdered Indigenous individuals.  Please note: The day can be triggering for those affected by MMWIG2S+ loss. You can connect with the MMWIG2S+ support call line at 1-844-413-6649. This line is available free of charge, 24/7.  Since 1974, @nwac_canada has advocated for Indigenous women, girls, and gender-diverse people. We extend our deepest gratitude to NWAC for bringing #MMIWG2S to light!  #RedDressDay  #IndigenousRights  #justiceforMMIWG2S
