The UWaterloo 16 Days planning committee
acknowledge that we are on the traditional territory
of the Attawandaron (Neutral), Anishinaabeg, and
Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of
Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract,
the land promised to the Six Nations that includes
ten kilometers on each side of the Grand River.
Welcome to #16daysUW | 2017
Each year, the University of Waterloo joins with organizations, governments, and groups worldwide to participate in 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence to remind all citizens that they can take actions in their everyday lives to stop gender-based violence.
16 Days begins on November 25 with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and concludes on December 10, International Human Rights Day. In Canada, 16 Days includes the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women on December 6.
