Vigil in Memory of Sarah Inam

Sunday, October 16, 2022 2:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

Vigil in memory of Sarah Inam

Join us in remembering and demanding justice for University of Waterloo alumna, Sarah Inam (MA ’07), who lost her life to intimate partner violence.

A brilliant student, Sarah completed both her undergraduate (2005) and graduate (2007) degrees in Economics from Waterloo and went on to have a successful international career in public policy and economic development.

Kind, gentle, beautiful Sarah touched the hearts and enriched the lives of everyone who met her, before she was taken away by the person who was supposed to love and cherish her the most.

An avid reader, in one of her recent Instagram posts she wrote - “Last night, your lost memory stole into my mind. It was as though Spring had suddenly brightened up my desolation. As though the desert had felt the softness of rain. As though the dying were given hope to live again.” – Faiz Ahmad Faiz

We cherish the memories we have of you Sarah and will fight for the justice you deserve.
