December 6: Remember and work for change

Dec 6_Remember and Work for change

National Day of Remembrance & Action on Violence Against Women, December 6

The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women was established to honour victims of the December 6, 1989 massacre at École Polytechnique in Montreal, where 14 women were murdered because they were women.  One of those women, Maryse Laganière, was a CUPE member who worked at the school.

Let’s remember and work for change to end violence against women, and all forms of sexual and gender-based violence and discrimination in the workplace, at home, and in the community.
