Gather at 5:30pm
All are welcome. Please join us!
Together we will veil one of the monument benches in white to represent the suffering and loss of the Yazidi women and girls.
There will be a meditation and a moment of silence for those who have been murdered.
Information will be provided on actions that can be taken, including a letter to our representatives in parliament, plus future efforts to support Yazidi women.
Guest Speaker: Senator Mobina Jaffer
Senator Jaffer has met with Yazidi women and can share information with all those who attend.
