Positive Change Toronto
Saturday, November 16, 2013
On Monday, November 18, join Positive Change and Ottawa-area supporters for a candlelight vigil on Parliament Hill to remember the loved ones we've lost to gun violence.
Imagine, on an ordinary day that started like so many others, you’re told your child was killed last night. Unfortunately, more than 50 Somali-Canadian mothers will never forget the day they found out their son died.
And, shamefully, the great majority of the cases remain unsolved.
On November 18, join three of those mothers, Positive Change, and Ottawa-area supporters at a peaceful vigil on Parliament Hill to remember the loved ones we’ve lost, and to raise awareness of an alarming upwards trend in gun violence in the Somali-Canadian community.
Join us as we send a clear message to our national decision makers: together, let’s stop the violence.
After the 30 minute vigil, we will walk to Ottawa University for light refreshments and a screening of It Takes a Village, a documentary on violence in our community.
Bring your family and friends as we take our message to Parliament Hill – together, we can stop the violence. Join us.
