Lasalle supports Violence Against Women Awareness campaign
Staff and students at Lasalle Secondary School will be invited to wear white ribbons on Friday, December 4, 2015 and take a pledge to end violence against women and girls.
The Gender Studies class at Lasalle Secondary School, under the guidance of teacher Jessie Dupuis, is spearheading the initiative in support of the Government of Canada’s Violence Against Women Awareness campaign.
The support is in response to the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25th, and the 26th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre on December 6th.
“Our staff and students are proud to support the Violence Again Women Awareness campaign,” says Lasalle Secondary School Principal Maureen McNamara.
She adds: “It is a time for us to reflect on these terrible tragedies and to help end violence against women and girls – now and for the future.”
Lasalle Secondary School invites the community to log onto women.gc.ca and join the movement to #EndViolence.
