MMIWG2S Tree of Hope Project
Treaty Three Police Service is proud to announce our participation in the MMIWG2S Tree of Hope Project, alongside 33 other dedicated police services this year.
Initiated by the Thunder Bay Police in 2019, this impactful project serves as a beacon of awareness, shedding light on the thousands of missing Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit individuals.
The symbolic trees are adorned with solemn red lights, representing the countless victims. Every year, on the first Sunday following Remembrance Day, these trees come to life, illuminating the night at 6:00 pm, as we pay our respects to the MMIWG2S community. These lights remain aglow until mid-January, a poignant tribute to their enduring memory.
This year, T3PS takes pride in lighting trees in both our General Headquarters in Kenora and our Our South Detachment on Agency One Lands, standing in unity and solidarity with the MMIWG2S community, as we continue to advocate for justice and remembrance.
