December 6th marks the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. It is both a day for remembering and honouring and a call for action against the ongoing and widespread violence experienced by women in Canadian society.
In the spirit of solidarity and with a call for men to act against all forms of gender based violence, a Memorial Walk for Men has been organized by the Ontario Public Interest Research Group (OPIRG) McMaster to take place on campus from 10 am until 11 am on Friday, December 4, 2015. They will meet outside the Indigenous Studies Program entrance of Hamilton Hall. Directly following, participants are invited to attend the McMaster Anti-Violence Network Commemorative Service taking place at 11 am in Gilmour Hall Room 111.
