Brock University and Niagara College will pay tribute to missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, LGBTQ and two-spirit people by taking part in the REDress project next week.

Niagara College and Brock University will be remembering missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, LGBTQ and two-spirit people next week. 

Officials say the schools are teaming up for the REDress project, which will see red dresses hung throughout the campuses. 

The annual initiative, which sees red clothing displayed in public places, began in 2011 and has been replicated in communities throughout the country. 

The empty red dresses are meant to signify the amount of Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit, lesbian, gay, trans, bisexual, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual (2SLGTBQQIA) lives lost over the past forty years to colonial violence.
