In Unity: Educating on MMIW
Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (#MMIW) is a national issue - not just an Indigenous issue. Demonstrate that you are aware and care about #MMIW in Canada by standing #InUnity on 19 October 2017.
- WHEN: 12:00 on Thursday, 19 October 2017
- WHERE: Alumni Stadium, University of Guelph
- HOW TO REGISTER: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/in-unity-educating-on-mmiw-tickets-37712344638
Know that "In Unity" is a community art initiative taking place at the University of Guelph. It is designed to bring awareness to #MMIW.
On 19 October, registered participants will stand, in unity, to show that they have heard Indigenous calls to action. Aerial photographs will be taken of the participants.
Together, participants will form a medicine wheel. They will be provided with umbrellas in one of four colours: yellow, red, black, or white. These colours represent the four directions: east, south, west, and north. Colours have been selected to suggest that individuals across the globe have a role to play in advocating against violence.
To stimulate meaningful change, to build safer communities for Indigenous women, we must universally recognize Indigenous women as valuable members of society.
Photographs will be exhibited online and at an art gallery in Guelph.
