From October 4 to November 25, red dresses are on display at OPL branches, as well as Town of Oakville Town Hall, and all recreation and culture facilities. This is an Indigenous women-led campaign hosted by Grandmothers Voice in Halton, Ontario and is our communities’ response to the 231 Calls for Justice for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls 2S+. This initiative brings community together by providing a Red Dress to display at branches.
Accompanied by a poster, information and QR Code, the dress remains displayed from Sisters in Spirit Day October 4 to November 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Our wish through the visibility of the red dresses and content provided, we will collectively stand together to protect our Women, Girls, Children and Gender Diverse Relatives.
REDress Project - Red Ribbon at Crawford Lake - For the second year we invite you to tie a red ribbon on a white pine, stand in solidarity and offer a moment of silence for our Sisters In Spirit and those missing. Grandmothers Voice would like to acknowledge and thank the WHAM Women of Halton who started this REDress and Sisters in Spirit initiative in our region.
