Service remembers victims of violence

Students, staff, faculty and members of the public are invited to attend a service on campus to mark the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

The noon hour service will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 4, the last day of classes at UVic. University chancellor Dr. Norma Mickelson will lead the ceremony, which will include speeches from students and faculty members as well as musical performances. Prior to and after the service, participants are encouraged to view the Open University Resource Sexual Assault Centre’s “Clothesline Project” featuring T-shirts with messages about sexualized violence.

The UVic Women’s Centre is currently seeking performers and speakers for a memorial coffee house it will host on Dec. 6 at the Solstice Café, 529 Pandora St. Those interested in speaking or performing are invited to call 721-8353 or e-mail wcentre@uvss.uvic.ca.
