National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women

Today is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women; a day commemorated on the anniversary of the 1989 Ecole Polytechnique massacre where 14 women were murdered and 14 other women were injured.

Thank you to The Lotus Centre for organizing this event and honouring women who lost their lives to violence.

The event is happening today until 3pm where you can visit the gazebo at the Lotus Centre and place a memorial tag (provided on site) for a woman.

Third Place Transition House will also be on site from 1pm-3pm to take about the work they do for the community.
