December 6th: National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women
The Centre for Media and Culture and Education and Department of Social Justice Education at OISE organized and supported a round table and open community microphone event to mark December 6th: National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. Rigorous and important discussions brought together front line workers, counselors and educators working with survivors of violence and its prevention, and student and faculty activists who debated the contexts, histories and race/class/gender/sexuality/place/nationality intersectionality of violence in educational and other spaces and how we respond to it. The event ended with a dance performance dedicated to survivors of gendered, sexed and raced violence by Aisha Nicholson (KasheDance). Aisha’s memorable and deeply moving performance is available for viewing below!
