November 25 to December 6 are days set aside for the Okanagan campus’ annual White Ribbon Campaign.
It’s a time to remember the women killed, commemorate the tragedy, and create awareness about the Eradication of Violence Against Women campaign.
A number of events have been organized, including a free showing of the movie Polytechnique, the 2009 Genie Award-winning film directed by Denis Villeneuve.
The screening takes place Monday, Nov. 25 at 5 p.m. in the Student Union Theatre, UNC Building.
Throughout that week, there are a number of awareness events and displays at various locations across campus.
A memorial service for the victims of the December 6 tragedy will be held in the Engineering, Management and Education Building’s Hallisey Atrium at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, November 27.
Following the service, everyone is encouraged to participate in the painting of the Engineering ‘E’ outside the EME building.
Commemorative messages of inspiration, peace, and hope will be painted onto the large E, which is normally painted red. The E will be painted white for the week of remembrance.
