Support the Women You Love

Dec 6 National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women.

This is a day to reflect on the violence still present in our society against women and girls. Think about how you are participating in this violence yourself. Don’t let belittling comments go unchallenged. Assert your own beliefs without shaming anyone.

Being part of creating a healthy society is part of creating a healthy, balance in your own well being.

On Thursday, December 6 the Remembrance will be held at the Empire Theatre this year. This is an incredibly empowering time as communities across the country come together to remind us that violence against women is still a very real and daily issue. It doesn't just happen somewhere else. It happens here in our college and in our hearts. Call the Empire Theatre for tickets 613 969-0099.
