On Jan. 29, 2017, a gunman barged into a Québec City mosque and killed six worshippers, wounded several, leaving one person paralyzed for life.
Islamophobia and hate kill…
We gather each year on this day to remember and honour those whose lives were lost and those whose lives were altered forever by this horrific act of hate.
The Canadian government recognizes Jan.29 as the National Day of Remembrance of the Québec City Mosque Attack and Action against Islamophobia. We must come together to strengthen our resolve and continue to tackle hate and Islamophobia at all levels.
The Coalition of Muslim Women of KW feels it’s important that racialized communities raise their voices to push for change in the police force and community.
All racialized community members are invited to our Jan. 29 townhall to directly asks questions of Mark Crowell, new police chief, about how Waterloo Regional Police Services acts in response to hate reports and cases.

We will also be introducing our new Anti-Hate Services website during the event.
