Ending Sexism, Harassment & Violence Dec 6th

Sisters, Brothers & Friends,


Please join us for this year’s December 6th Virtual Memorial Service in honour of the National Day of Remembrance & Action on Violence Against Women, presented by the MFL Women’s Committee. Event poster attached.


This year’s event will be structured as a zoom webinar (12:00 PM – 12:30 PM), and will include an important address from our special guest speaker, CLC President, Sister Bea Bruske, on the topic:


Ending Sexism, Harassment & Violence: Union Work, Union Responsibility


As we do every year, we will also be fundraising for Manitoba’s network of women’s shelters. Since we’re unable to hold an in-person fundraising lunch this year, you can support our fundraiser in one of two ways:

(1) By making a donation c/o Manitoba Federation of Labour, 303-275 Broadway, Winnipeg, MB, R3C 4M6 (memo: Dec 6th), or

(2) By purchasing holiday poinsettia plants through our fundraising partnership with Shelmerdine’s. You can order plants online at the following link, and they will be available for pick-up on December 6th from the Union Centre:


Manitoba Federation of Labour Fundraiser 2021 - Shelmerdine Garden Center


Poinsettia orders must be placed by November 19.


Thank you in advance for your support.


Please visit mfl.ca to register for the December 6th Virtual Memorial Service.


Warning: this event will deal with themes of violence against women and femicide, which may be triggering for some participants. If you find yourself in need of urgent support, please contact the Klinic Crisis Line (24/7) at: 204-786-8686 / 1-888-322-3019.



In Solidarity,
