We meet monthly to remember all 833 people whose names are recorded here and the countless others who have been forgotten by some.
The June memorial marked the adding the 831 name to the Homeless Memorial which is not a milestone to be proud of, but one that was marked none-the-less. The Toronto Star wrote an article on this event that quietly took place outside the church on the second Tuesday of July.
We spoke out against police violence that led to “John Doe’s” death, observed our moment of silence for him and all those who have died. We heard Bonnie’s poem and shared announcements of actions we could take to change the system so that no more deaths will occur.
