The VAW program would like to acknowledge the Elderly program staff and members from the CHR program also participated by wearing red shirts as well as displaying a red camp dress outside the Elderly program building.  The month of May brings awareness of MMIW/G however, May 5th is the day designated to display red dresses. The Violence Against Women Program requested that the community display red dresses on their front yard and wear something red on May 5th in support of Missing Murdered Indigenous Women/Girls (MMIW/G) movement representing all women and young girls who are either missing or have been murdered.  The Violence Against Women program displayed five dresses out side the building all during the month of May.
