On March 8, 2022 International Women’s Day, all women are invited to create their own red dress tribute at 3 PM at Geek and Coffee. Over 100 dresses have been donated. Each dress will have the name of a disappeared woman to be read aloud. The event will be highlighted by the music of local artist, Liah Alonso. All women are encouraged to wear red to show solidarity with the disappeared women and their families.
