Indigenous Pink Day – AICAF
October 15, 2020
Join AICAF on October 15, 2020 to celebrate Indigenous Pink Day!
Indigenous Pink Day is a national breast cancer awareness campaign for Native people. Our team invites Indigenous people of all ages to join us by wearing pink and sharing photos on social media using the hashtag #IndigenousPink to raise awareness of breast cancer in Indian Country. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Native women, and is the second leading cause of cancer death. However, all bodies have breast tissue and are at risk for developing breast cancer. Indigenous Pink Day aims to educate Native communities about the importance of early detection, and remind women, men, non-binary, and genderfluid relatives to talk to their doctors about breast cancer screening. Because this national campaign happens on a digital platform, community members are able to participate from anywhere!
