Article Date: 
Jackie Foord spoke at the provincial vigil for the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women today.
Here is her message:
December 6th, 1989 was a terrible day in Canadian history.  One of our darkest moments. For me, it was the day when my sense of safety, justice, and equality was forever changed.

Donations to Marlene Bird and Family

As you may have heard, a Prince Albert woman named Marlene Bird was brutally attacked on June 1, 2014 in Prince Albert and transferred to the University of Alberta hospital here in Edmonton for treatment.

YWCA Edmonton has been in touch with Marlene and her family, who have come out to Edmonton to support Marlene in her recovery. We have been assisting family members with food cards and gas cards and are willing to offer our counselling services if required.
