16 Days of Activism

November 25 @ 8:00 am - December 10 @ 11:30 pm

We want to “purple” calendar. If a business/school or group in town is interested in purple ribbons and poster to show their “actions matter’ in ending gender based violence we would love to hear from you.

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, which begins on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25 and end on International Human Rights Day on December 10, have always been a time to increase awareness about the disproportionate levels of violence faced by women and girls, as well as diverse populations, including Indigenous peoples, LGBTQ2 community members, gender non-binary individuals, those living in northern, rural, and remote communities, people with disabilities, newcomers, children and youth, and seniors.

The 16 Days of Activism also include the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women on December 6. This is a time to both reflect on violence against women and to take action to end it.

This year’s theme, #MYActionsMatter, carries on the message from last year’s successful campaign and is a call to action that asks everyone to take concrete steps to question, call out, and speak up against acts of gender-based violence (GBV). Recently, public attention has shone a light on what statistics have long confirmed: women in Canada and around the world continue to face violence each and every day. In response to this all-too-familiar reality #MYActionsMatter asks the question: what will you do?
