14 Not Forgotten

November 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

December 6, 1989 marks the day an armed man walked into an engineering class at I’école Polytechnique de Montréal and killed 14 women and injured ten more.

As the month of December comes closer, we turn our minds to the memory of the 14 women engineering students who lost their lives on a terrible day that does not seem so long ago.

As a Faculty, we honour those women whose lives were abruptly ended, and reaffirm our commitment to end all forms of violence and create supportive, caring communities. Standing in memory is one small thing we can do to show this commitment.

We invite UBC students, staff and faculty to join us on November 30th for our Annual 14 Not Forgotten Ceremony to remember the 14 women who lost their lives and stand against violence towards women.

Led by the Engineering Undergraduate Society with support from the APSC EDI.I office
