Special Event

The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

 Simon Fraser University
Location: Convocation Mall

Monday, 06 December 2021 12:30PM PST


December 6th marks the anniversary of the murder of 14 women at the l’École Polytechnique de Montréal in 1989. Following this event, Canada established December 6th as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women, a day to reflect and take action against gender-based violence.

For this year’s memorial we have invited members of the SFU community to speak about the impact the Montreal Massacre has had on their lives. Speakers include students, faculty, and staff. We will hear about what has changed, what has remained the same, and how we can all continue to build concrete actions to end gender-based violence in our communities.Follow the SVSPO on Instagram or Facebook for more information. 

*This memorial is a collaborative effort between SFU WiE, the Sexual Violence Support and Prevention Office, the SFU Human Rights Office, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion SFU, Academic Women SFU and the SFSS Women’s Centre.
