2022 Candle Light Vigil
Join us on Thursday, November 24th, 2022 to kick off the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. This special evening will feature speakers, entertainment and refreshments and a short walk to the falls with our candles (we will provide them) to watch them turn orange. We are so honoured to have Dr. Robyn Bourgeois as our guest speaker and the musical stylings of Indigenous-led drum and singing group Strong Water Singers. For more information, please email Sarah at [email protected]
