York’s Centre for Human Rights invites the York community to join in the commemoration for the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women Thursday, Dec. 4, from 11:30am to 12:30pm, at the Underground Restaurant, Student Centre.
This day will provide the York community with a platform to have continued discussions about gender-based violence.
Dec. 6 will mark the 25th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre, a tragic act of gender-based violence that left 14 young women dead on the campus of l’Ecole Polytechnique Montreal. In 1991, the Parliament of Canada established Dec. 6 as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women in Canada.
