The FFAW Women’s Committee ask you to mourn their loss and remember their lives, while reaffirming your commitment to fight the hatred that led to this tragedy, and the misogyny that still exists today.

The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women is about remembering those who have experienced gender-based violence and those who we have lost to it. It is also a time to take action. Achieving a Canada free from gender-based violence requires everyone living in this country to educate themselves and their families and communities on gender-based violence, centre the voices of survivors in our actions and speak up against harmful behaviours.

Our Committee is committed to building a more just, equitable, and empowered Union.

There will be a Vigil in St. John’s on December 6thhttps://gazette.mun.ca/campus-and-community/dec-6-vigil-5/attachment/068-dec-6th-vigil-2022-800×400/

Please reach out to your local Status of Women Centre for any events in your area.

In solidarity,

FFAW-Unifor Women’s Committee
