Ann Davis Transition Society is getting ready to mark the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Chilliwack.

It will be held on the steps of the museum Dec. 6 with a candlelight vigil at shortly after 5 p.m.

Terrorism is clearly on the rise globally but there are other significant threats closer to home.

“That is what the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women is all about,” said ADTS president Kirsten Hauge.

There are women afraid to walk alone at night, women sexually assaulted, women stalked and threatened every day, she said.

ADTS reps were pleased to hear recently that a federal inquiry will be called into missing and murdered women.

“It is up to each and every one of us to remember the women that have been lost and to hold the government accountable for implementation of the enquiry’s final recommendations,” Hauge said.

Everyone is invited to take part in the ADTS vigil on Sunday, Dec. 6, meeting outside their offices on Young Road at 5 p.m. before heading over to the Chilliwack Museum.

“Join us as we light a candle for each of the 14 women who died in the Montreal Massacre of 1989, and those who’ve been killed since then.”

The museum is at 45820 Spadina Avenue.
