Annual Shoe Memorial – December 6

The 15th Annual Shoe Memorial will take place on the steps of the Vancouver Art Gallery to remember over 950 women killed by violence in BC.

December 6 is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women in Canada. Established in 1991 by the Parliament of Canada, this day marks the anniversary of the murders in 1989 of 14 young women at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal. They died because they were women.What will you do?

The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women is about remembering victims; it is also a time to take action. Your #ActionsMatter
