December 6th marks 31 years since 14 women were murdered at Polytechnique Montréal University, simply because they were women. As a consequence of this terrible act of violence, December 6th was designated as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. This day is about remembering those who have experienced gender based violence, as well as those who have been lost to it. It is also a call to action to help prevent gender-based violence by listening to survivors, speaking up against it, and raising awareness.
Please take a few minutes today to watch The Trauma and Mental Health Report’s video on this issue, and consider what you can do to take action.
