National Day of Remembrance
December 6, 2017
The École Polytechnique massacre took place on December 6, 1989 in Montreal, Quebec.
On this date a lone gunman killed 14 women and injured 10 more simply because they were women. Today we remember these women and honour the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
Participate in a December 6th vigil taking place in your community in honour of all women who have lost their lives due to gender-based violence. Use your voice and stand in solidarity with organizational initiatives aimed to eliminate violence against women.
