One Billion Rise to End Violence Against Women

Thursday, January 31 2013

I am pleased to inform you that today the Ontario Federation of Labour issued a strong statement of support of the ONE BILLION RISING campaign – an international day of action to end violence against women and girls taking place on February 14, 2013. On a day when many women will be celebrated with love and respect, millions will be abused, brutalized or murdered.

Let’s take action to support our Sisters in Canada and around the world!

To help get you started, the OFL has developed an ‘Action Plan’ to encourage all affiliates, locals, and community partners to participate – in ways small and large – by holding actions and becoming part of this important international uprising. There are many ways to participate and have all of our voices heard. Every action matters.

Visit the OFL website (, read the OFL statement ( and download the Action Plan ( to mobilize for February 14th.
