On May 5th, École Dr. Charles Best Secondary Social Justice students displayed red dresses in front of the school to help raise awareness and honour the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIW) and two spirit people.

The Red Dress Project began as a commemorative installation project by Métis artist Jamie Black in response to the critical national issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. The project has been installed in public places throughout Canada and the United States and has since evolved into a national movement.

École Dr. Charles Best Secondary School students also invited the Kwikwetlem First Nation for a drum procession and reflected on this day.
