Today, December 6th known as White Ribbon Day, we remember the women who have lost their lives to violence and we pay tribute to those women. Twenty nine years after the 1989 Polytechnique massacre in Montreal we continue to live in fear of violence every day. This is our reality. But it does not define who we are. We are strong, we are sacred, we are medicine.
The Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) stands in solidarity with all women on The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. We invite all Ontarians to stand alongside us to end violence against women.
