Becoming a supporter of feminism.

Chris Corrigan

But on December 6, 1989, when I was 21, my lifelong support for the feminist struggle was cemented. I was always a social justice minded kid. Every year I publish the list of women who died that day and whose deaths changed the lives of so many of us. Never forgotten are: • Geneviève Bergeron (born 1968), mechanical engineering student. Hélène Colgan (born 1966), mechanical engineering student. Nathalie Croteau (born 1966), mechanical engineering student.

Reflections on PGviz18

The place was bustling with activity intended to bring families together and support their educational goals. This was a fitting start as much of what we do as graphic facilitators is try to understand how our tools can be of service to support others in their path. I am inspired.
