RE: CAUT Statement for the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women on December 6th
In recognition of the fourteen women murdered at L’Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal in 1989, December 6 is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
This year, CAUT’s statement will be published in the Bulletin and on our websitein advance of December 6. Attached is a copy of the statement which is in the form of a poster that you can print, circulate to your members and display.
We encourage member associations to issue their own statement for the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women and to participate in and support campus and community events that seek to end violence.
If your association issues a statement or participates in activities, please let us know. If you have any questions, require assistance or would like to share information about the events happening locally on your campus or in your community, please do not hesitate to contact Linda Rumleski (firstname.lastname@example.org or 613.820.2270 x.178).
