The Call Out:
The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women and Children is held each December 6th in memory of the 14 young women killed at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique in 1989, as well as women today who continue to experience violence in its many forms.
More than just a memorial, it is also a call to action to end violence against women and children.
The occasion will be marked on the St. George campus beginning at 12noon with remarks and laying roses on the December 6th memorial benches located in front of Hart House near the UTSU Observatory. It will continue with a free lunch in Hart House’s East Common Room where guests will have an opportunity for informal conversation and to discuss opportunities to end violence at the University of Toronto.
