This past weekend there were lots of red dress and MMIWG2S+ events in the tri-community to raise awareness, and to show support and love for those who have experienced this injustice. The Pas Family Resource Centre organized a Red Dress Round Dance last Friday at the intersection of Edwards and 2nd Street, to show support for National Red Dress Day.
“We had such a huge turnout and it exceed our expectations, and what we had hoped for even,” said The Pas Family Resource Centre’s Renee Kastrukoff. “There were over 150 people in attendance for the Red Dress Round Dance and lunch.
