Saskatchewan Polytechnic is marking Sunday’s national awareness day for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) with red dress displays at each of its campuses.

Deanna Speidel, Indigenous strategy co-ordinator with the college, said the displays have a profound impact on people when they see some of the smaller sizes.

“We recognize that there are young children that have been affected by this — that have gone missing, have been murdered,” she said. “Seeing those little dresses makes you stop and think.”
