ATU Local 113’s United Indigenous Council (UIC) commemorated Red Dress Day on Sunday with a display at Arrow Road. The dress featured in the display was designed and created by E J Kwandibens, an Indigenous Cultural Educator in Toronto. It was commissioned in 2022 for the UIC’s initiative to raise awareness in our work locations about the ongoing crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ peoples across Canada. On Red Dress Day and every day, we reflect, grieve, and work together towards ending this ongoing national tragedy.
