Today is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. We invite our community to join us today in remembering the 14 women killed in 1989 at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal and the many women who have lost their lives to gender-based violence since. Since November 25, 2021, 52 women have been murdered in Ontario due to femicide. The work to end violence against women is not done. Our community needs to work together to advocate for changes to the systems in place that have been developed to protect women from violence.
FTP hosted an outdoor vigil today to remember and reflect on the women who have needlessly lost their lives. Guests were invited to share their perspectives, reflections and experiences, and to commit to working with us to end gender-based violence.
If you are unable to join us for the in-person vigil, please take some time today to watch the following video that we have put together to honour these women. Please also take a moment to reflect on what you can do to help end gender-based violence.
