About the Vigil
Join CFUW Southport's 31st Vigil in person to help us continue to raise
awareness of gender-based violence.
On December 6th, we will once again recognize the 14 women who were massacred at the Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal in 1989 by a man claiming to be fighting feminism.
At this time we also remember the missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
We invite you to join us on Monday, December 6th, at noon at Coulter Parkette, off Green Street in Port Elgin, to remember those who were lost, are missing, and are still suffering from abuse today.
Our Speakers will be from Victim Services, Women's House Serving Grey Bruce and the Kabaeshiwin Respite Shelter.
Please wear a mask and respect social distancing.
So what can YOU do to make a difference in the lives of the women and
children who need to escape an abusive relationship?
Please consider supporting our local Women's Shelters.
