25 years have passed…but sadly, we all know this could happen again, anytime.

Consider, on this National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women, the many documented missing and murdered Indigenous women, incidents like Ghomeshi and Cosby and the daily struggles against harassment, sexual assault, domestic assault and so much more. Remember, reflect and act.
