The We Can B.C. Coalition held a Candlelight Vigil at Burnaby Civic Square on Dec. 10th to wrap up the16 days of activism campaign.

Burnaby Mayor Corrigan was the opening speaker, followed by former B.C. Teachers' Federation president Jinny Sims, Linda Kuan of the Canadian Red Cross and Marjorie Dumont from the teachers' federation's aboriginal education advisory committee.

The vigil served as a memorial for murdered women across the province and the Coalition plans on making this an annual event every year on the International Day for Human Rights - December 10th.

PRESS CONFERENCE - November 22, 2020 @ BCTF

The We Can B.C. Coalition launched its 16 Days of Activism campaign inviting citizens throughout B.C. to join with coalition partners and take action to stop violence against women.  The coalition is modeled on the international "We Can" campaign taking place in six countries in South Asia seeking to trigger a person-to-person chain reaction of change in attitudes and behaviour on a scale sufficient to generate a mass social movement to end all violence against women.

The 16 Days of Activism

We would like to thank the community for your support during these 16 days and bringing more awareness about the seriousness of the issue of Violence Against Women.

The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence began November 25, the International Day Against Violence Against Women and ran through to December 10, International Human Rights Day.

November 29 - International Women Human Rights Defender Day, December 1 - World AIDS Day
December 3 - International Day of Disabled Persons
December 6 - the Anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.
