[Description]

The horror that Jyoti Singh Pandey and her friend endured on a bus in Delhi on December 16th is senseless, atrocious and unacceptable.

On Tuesday, January 15th, between 5:30 - 7 pm, Sakhi invites you to join a candle light vigil to honor Jyoti's life and to remind ourselves that the work to end gender-based violence is urgent, necessary and ongoing.

Please join us at Union Square, Northern Plaza at 5:30 pm on January 15th.
