Unifor encourages all members to support one of the many local events or vigils organized to honour the memory of those innocent lives lost and to reflect on the tragedy that unfolded last January 29. The National Council of Canadian Muslims has a listing of events on its website.
January 29, 2018 will mark the one-year anniversary of the national tragedy in which 6 Canadian Muslim men were murdered and 19 others were wounded, leaving one man paralyzed. It is through this Day of Action, that we show our solidarity and commitment to say no to Islamophobia, and call for inclusive communities.
On January 20, 2018, millions will march again in cities around the world. Unifor is encouraging every member to participate in the global Women’s March. Now is an important time to show resistance and solidarity. We must not rest until all women have equity, justice and parity at all levels of leadership in society. The Ottawa march starts at 12pm on Parliament Hill. To find a Women’s March Canada near you, visit www.womensmarchcanada.com.
