Join us for the Montreal Massacre Memorial on the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women.

This year, the event will take place on December 5th, and as in previous years, we will hold it at the Vancouver Public Library – Central Branch from 10:00am – 6:00pm.

One of the event highlights is a lecture by our guest from Ireland, Rachel Moran, author of “Paid for: My journey through prostitution”. Rachel will speak about her personal experience and her fight for abolition in Ireland and worldwide.
