On Thursday, December 4, the Augustana community will again remember the victims of the Montreal Massacre and recognize the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

The following will be part of this remembrance and recognition:

1) Women in black: 14 women will dress in black for the day and wear placards with the names of each of the 14 women who were killed on December 6, 1989.

Women in black are selected from Augustana female students, staff, faculty and administration.

2) Banners: The banners recognizing the 14 women who were killed on December 6, 1989 are on the light standards on college lane (thank you to facilities staff!)

3) Vigil: We will again hold a candle-light vigil. Most of the vigil is outdoors so please dress appropriately. The vigil will start at 5:00 in the Faith and Life lounge. We are thankful to the participants in this year’s Canada World Youth program who are assisting in the advertising of the vigil as well as being readers.

PLEASE NOTE: All genders and ages are invited and welcome to attend the vigil.
