Red Dress Project, Educating Youth on the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Woman Crisis
On this week’s episode of the #RisingYouth Podcast, Jade Roberts Host of Still Here Still healing sits down with Mackenzie who talks about her contribution to the Red Dress Project. Mackenzie a Rising Youth Alumni was inspired by the work Jamie Black. The Red Dress project is a response to the more than 1000 indigenous women who are missing or have been murdered in Canada. Symbolizing the indigenous women who are stolen from their families, an arrangement of red dresses are displayed in a public place. Mackenzie brought the project to her hometown of Fort McMurray to help raise awareness and educate other youth.
