Halifax

"Not So Silent" Vigil


5:30pm
- 8:00pm
Sunday December 6 2015

Venue: Halifax North Memorial Library & Mi'kmaw Native Friendship Centre

» More information

Join us December 6, 2015 from 5:30 - 8:00pm on the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women - 26 years after the Montreal Massacre. This gender inclusive event will start at 5:30pm at the Halifax North Memorial Library; followed by the warmth of the Mi'kmaw Native Friendship Centre at 2158 Gottingen Street for food, spoken word, music, action, sharing and inspiration featuring performances and speakers.

The massacre was and continues to be a wake-up call for each of us: violence against women is a tragic reality. While we hold the memory of the massacre in silent reflection at vigils we also need to speak out and end the silence that obscures this global issue. The voice of women will not be silenced.
