Annually across Canada events are held as a day of action to help stop violence against women. Many refer to these events as part of the National Day of Remembrance. Some of us remember the utter shock and sadness when we found out about the terrible violence that took place in Montreal on that fateful day that 14 women were targeted solely because they were women. Today we have more events that speak out against violence. Just two weeks ago the international, annual Trans Day of Remembrance was held. It is important to remember that violence can touch all of our lives. Jackson Katz has explained that violence against women is a men’s issue. I concur with Katz and hope that you watch his TED Talk.
Find out if there are any events taking place in your community. We are all part of the struggle to stop violence. I have attached a screen shot of a campus event (Dec 4th) and local candlelight vigil (Dec 6th). Please share this information.
