This year, MSUM’s annual Take Back the Night event on Sept. 20 centers the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls (MMIWG). To raise awareness of cases like Savanna Lafontaine-Greywind’s, we’re asking members of our MSUM community to display a red paperdress in the days leading up to the Sept. 20 event.
Drop by Dragon Fest on Tuesday, Sept. 11 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and visit the American Indian Student Association table to learn more and pick up a paper dress to display on your office or residence hall door or window. Or visit the Women’s Center (Bridges 154) to pick up a red paper dress between Sept. 12-17.
This year’s Take Back the Night #MMIWG is co-sponsored by the Women’s Center, American Indian Student Association, Campus Feminist Organization, and the Women’s and Gender Studies Program.
