Local 832 calling on activists to “Take Back the Night”

UFCW Local 832 is encouraging its members to take part in the “Take Back the Night” March on September 20, at 6:30 p.m.

Members are asked to meet at the Salvation Army Weetamah, 324 Logan Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Take Back the Night, is a worldwide march held in protest of violence against women and children.

The event began in the 1970s when groups of women with candles marched together and spoke out against the pervasive violence affecting the lives of women around the world.

Over the coming weeks UFCW Canada activists will be taking part in Take Back the Night events across the country. To find out more about the international Take Back the Night movement, go to www.takebackthenight.org.
