National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women #Dec6

National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

Until violence against all women ends:#December6 is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

Our #ActionsMatter.

The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women  is a day commemorated in Canada each December 6, the anniversary of the 1989 École Polytechnique massacre, in which armed student murdered fourteen women and injured ten others in the name of “fighting feminism”.

Canadian flags on all federal buildings – including the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario – are flown at half-mast on December 6. Canadians are encouraged to observe a minute of silence on December 6 and to wear a white ribbon (or a purple ribbon) as a commitment to end violence against women.

Today hurts, and I pray today heals.
