White Ribbon breakfast

The UBC community will hold a breakfast Thursday, Nov. 29 to raise awareness of men's violence against women.

The event is part of the White Ribbon campaign, launched in response to the shooting of 14 women students at the Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal in 1989.

The pancake breakfast will be held in the second-floor SUB Partyroom from 7:30 - 11:30 a.m. Admission is a minimum $2 donation.

Funds will support women's groups that address the issue of violence against women and services for abused women.

For more information, call 604-822-2181 or e-mail safewalk@ams.ubc.ca.
