Our goal is to invite governments, civil society organizations and individuals to mark the days between November 25 and December 10 (the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence) to take action and to match political commitments with specific ACTIONS and adequate FUNDING to prevent and end violence against women and girls.
Given the events of the past year, showing up and participating in this event is one way to show our community how important this issue is to us in Ottawa.Please join us in this vigil being organized by the Grandmother's Advocacy Network, Women in International Security Canada and Crime Prevention Ottawa.
