Glowing candle_animated National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

On December 6,1989, 14 young women were horrifically killed at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal.
They died because the man who killed them hated women.

FTP will be hosting an outdoor ceremony at our Orangeville office to recognize these 14 women, as well as the many women who have lost their lives to gender-based violence.

We invite those in attendance to join us in an open discussion about changes that we as a community need to make to end gender-based violence. Hot beverages will be available.
