Dec 6th | Candlelight Vigil

December 6th is Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. The date is etched in history by the shooting deaths of 14 women in 1989 in Montreal by a man deliberately targeting women on a busy campus. Canadians reacted with shock, sorrow and outrage. A strong lobby formed to bring guns under control in Canada, work that continues to this day.

December 6th became the day we remember the women who died and re-commit to taking action on violence against women and girls until our streets, our campuses and our homes are safe.

GirlKIND is hosting a candle light vigil to honor all the lives lost because of violence against women. Please join us to help bring an end to violence against women.

The vigil begins at 4:30pm at the cenotaph at Thunderbird Memorial Square (off Veterans Way) in Abbotsford, BC. Please bring a candle.

Some quick pics from our Second Annual "Every Girl Matters Day," held in conjunction with the UN's Day of the Girl on Oct 11th, 2014.

We also had art table set up for individuals to create "inspiring pieces of art," that they could take home as keepsakes. Minister Mike DeJong officially presented the Proclamation held at The Reach Gallery Museum.
