Join us for a neighborhood cleanup as we pick up liter off our Mother Earth! How we take care of the earth reflects the way our women are treated. Everyone who comes to the neighborhood cleanup will be entered into a raffle to win Red Dress earings, MMIWR keychains, or MMIWR ribbon shirts made by local Native American artists.
The winners will be announced at the Milwaukee Pierhead Lighthouse, must be present to win. We will meet there after the cleanup and Avery Nahwahquaw will share an honor song for our missing and murdered relatives. We will share some words and prayers, and the City of Milwaukee will light up the Hoan Bridge red in honor of MMIWR.
6:30-7:30pm: Neighborhood Clean-Up at Gerald L. Ignace Indian Health Center (930 W. Historic Mitchell St)
8:00pm: Milwaukee Pierhead Lighthouse for gathering, song before lighting of the Hoan bridge at 9pm
