A Day of Remembrance
NO MORE STOLEN SISTERS

Stolen Sisters banner

Join us for an art installation & presentation inspired
by the REDress Project, Self Defense Class, Workshops,
and Food & Craft Vendors from communities of color!

Please join us Sunday, May 5th in Dallas,Texas to honor missing and murdered Indigenous women and women of color, and to learn how we can work together to counteract this epidemic and save our sisters, daughters, mothers, aunties, cousins and friends.

4 OUT OF 5 First Nations women are expected to encounter violence in their lifetimes. They experience some of the highest rates of sexual assault in the nation; 1 IN 3 are raped in their lifetime, and the murder rates of Native women exceed TEN TIMES the national average in some Tribal and urban communities. US authorities gather missing person statistics for every demographic... except for First Nations women. We disappear twice; once in life and once in the data world!

To address this epidemic, we first must acknowledge it by shining a light on it. This event will cross lines of race/color to include ALL communities of color, as this is not just a First Nation epidemic... women of color are disappearing at a phenomenal rate all over the North American continent.
