Injured Workers are not sleeping at night! How can our elected representatives?
2021 marks the 16th anniversary of the vigil organized by the Women of Inspiration injured workers’ group on the eve of Injured Workers’ Day. In past years the event has been held as an overnight vigil outside Queen’s Park to kick off the annual Injured Workers’ Day events. This year again, because of COVID-19, the vigil will be held online at 4:00 p.m. Monday May 31st (see details on how to join us).
Why We Sit Vigil
Back in 2006, members of the Women of Inspiration shared their difficulties sleeping at night. Their physical pain and worries were keeping them awake. Rather than lying sleepless alone at home, the women decided to be sleepless together, where they could make their worries known to the government and the public. The Women continue to be sleepless, 15 years later, and hold vigil to bring awareness to the consequences of workplace injuries and ask for justice for injured workers!
