SUPPORT SURVIVORS—Support the person. Involve the Community. Right the world.

Our 2019–2020 Purple Ribbon Campaign theme focuses on supporting survivors of violence to thrive.

Everyone welcome.

Annually, approximately 17,000 ribbons are cut and pinned to information cards by volunteers and distributed across the Island. The purple ribbons are worn to signify a commitment to remembering the 14 women murdered in Montreal in 1989, a horrific act of gender-based violence in Canadian history. We also wear purple ribbons to honour the memory of the Island women murdered by someone who knew them since 1989, and to call for justice for missing and murdered Indigenous women in our communities.
