Tomorrow marks the national day of remembrance and action on violence against women.
Mary Demare, from the Thompson Crisis Centre, spoke to 102.9 CHTM and explained that December 6th was chosen as it was the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.
Demare said that there will be an event here in Thompson to mark the day, starting at 11:00am in the T.R.C.C.
There are many ways to participate in the event, including placing a red dress on the wall of remembrance in honour of a lost or missing woman or girl.
There will also be a screening of a film, called “A Better Man”, starting at 1:15.
The day is being put on by the YWCA, The Thompson Crisis Centre, and the University of Manitoba Northern Social Work Program.
