In solidarity with the women of India
On January 14th, 2013 the Women's Resource Center NGO organized a candle-light vigil in solidarity with the women of India. The vigil was in memory of the 23 year old college student who was raped by 6 men in Delhi and who died a week ago as a result of sustained injuries. A number of NGO representatives, civil society activists and concerned individuals participated. The vigil, which lasted for about an hour, provided an opportunity for participants to meet with the temporary Indian ambassador commissionaire. A letter expressing the WRC concerns and interest in better understanding future steps that the Indian government will take regarding this case was passed on to the ambassador.
