Event Description

1 is too many, 1000 an ATROCITY

Help us to not forget:
donate woman’s and girl’s shoes to the
December 6, 2016 Annual Shoe Memorial
Vancouver Art Gallery, Robson Street side

8 am to 3 pm
Ceremony at 1 pm
December 6, 2016

It has been 27 years since fourteen women were selectively killed at the Montreal Polytechnique. It has been 14 years since we started the Shoe Memorial to remind people that Dec. 6 was a National Day of Remembrance and Action for Women Killed by Violence and more importantly remember all the many other women and girls killed by violence.

Since then more than 300 BC women have been added to our list. We will reach 1000 victims next year. We need your help to raise awareness of this atrocity and to remember the women murdered in BC.

They should never be forgotten: our goal is to represent each woman with a pair of shoes and listing their names. Join us and pay your respects to those who have been killed.

To donate shoes:
Lower Mainland: to donate shoes, for more information or to volunteer, please contact John (604) 807-8940 or
To our friends and volunteers the deadline for pick up or delivery of shoes is Nov. 24.

After the memorial the shoes are given, both directly and indirectly, to women in need.

The key message in these 8 Bystander videos is that violence against women is preventable and that those close by, such as friends and family have a crucial role to play.
