On December 6th 2015, Equal Voice uOttawa in collaboration with UESA came together to bring the #NONDOM Holiday party to Cafe Alternatif!

It was an enjoyable event with Equal Voice, UESA members, and friends coming out to enjoy the free food and poems.

We were treated to a touching reading of poems from Natalie Hanna. Natalie Hanna is an Ottawa lawyer who works with low income populations, an alumni of Carleton and uOttawa, and the author of seven chapbooks. To commemorate the Polytechnique massacre that occurred on December 6th 1989, she shared poems that addressed violence against women.
