The Rose Campaign commemorates Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. On December 6, 1989, 14 women, individuals at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal, were gunned down simply because they were women.
The day now represents a time to reflect on the issue of violence against women in our society. It is also a day for communities and individuals to speak out against all forms of violence against women and its impact on victims and their families.
2016 Rose Campaign Breakfast
Our goal is to raise $100,000 to support our YWCA Counselling Centre clients. This event is a powerful way to learn about the impact the YWCA has on reducing violence against women in our city, and how we can all help make a difference in the lives of women and girls.
