The COVID- 19 pandemic stay at home orders hasn’t stopped MMIWG #WhyWeWearRED Awareness in fact #WhyWearWearRED is more urgent now then ever.
Facts: Women and children are at home with their abusers due to pandemic. Human Trafficking is still happening No More Stolen Sisters.
Red Nation Celebration Institute’s Native Women in FILM Call to Action #WhyWeWearRED official COVID-19 Awareness effort.
Justice for American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian women and their children, by bringing awareness to this critical issue. Missing and murdered Native women and girls and the lack of inclusion of Native Women in Film & Television are inextricably linked.
‘When we don’t see Native women in media, and not seen in the bigger picture, it implies that we don’t matter, that our lives don’t matter. I’m a survivor of sexual assault. I was kidnapped, held hostage, drugged to unconscious for 10 days. At a moment of consciousness, I begged them to let me go. I am here to tell my story and speak for the ones who can’t.’ – Joanelle Romero
#WhyWeWearRED brings together survivors and Indigenous communities to heal and visualize a better world free from sexual harassment and violence.
