The price of cardiovascular disease is high and 1 in 3 women will pay that price with their life.
When women come together, there is nothing we can’t achieve. It’s time to take action.

Save Lives: Wear Red

Making an impact doesn’t just feel good, it’s fun! Here’s how you can help in 3 easy steps:

  1. Wear Red
  2. Come to the Women's Center for Gender Justice and Snap a Photo
  3. Spread the Word

STEP 1. Wear Red 

If we can turn the world red, we can change the future. Choose the iconic Red Dress pin, mask, hat, tie, scarf, or even socks. Style yourself red and share a photo on social to make a bold statement for a great cause.

STEP 2. Come to the Women's Center for Gender Justice to Snap a Photo

Stop by our office on Friday, February 4th to pick up an iconic Red Dress pin and snap a photo with us! 

STEP 3. Spread the Word


Help raise awareness that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women and encourage everyone to wear red and give. Tell a friend - chances are we all know someone affected by heart disease and stroke because cardiovascular disease claims the lives of 1 in 3 women - that's about one woman every 80 seconds.

Tips to turn your social networks red:

Follow the American Heart Association (@American_Heart) and Go Red for Women 
(@GoRedforWomen) on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
Share a photo of yourself on National Wear Red Day (Friday, Feb. 5, 2021) and how cardiovascular disease has impacted your life.
Tag your friends, asking them to Go Red, too.
