BEMIDJI-More than 100 people, either dressed in red or carrying crimson signs, marched through Bemidji on Thursday to show solidarity for missing and murdered Indigenous women and their families.

The local march was just one of several similar events taking place on an international scale. In both the United States and Canada, activists took to the streets to advocate for Native American women who've been disproportionately targeted for violence.
