We are calling the community to come to a silent vigil to honour and remember Kimberly's Roger's courage in challenging the government's cruel and life threatening workfare policies before she died alone, destitute and eight months pregnant in Sudbury in August 2001, while under house arrest for welfare fraud. Her "crime" was getting OSAP to earn a degree towards her future while receiving social assistance....

Information about the upcoming Inquest into the death of Kimberly Rogers
taking place in October will be available.

Donations to the Justice with Dignity Campaign: to end the lifetime ban for
welfare "fraud" and reform social assistance, will be very welcome

Please bring flowers! store bought, picked, paper, whatever you can to lay
at the site of the ceremony anytime from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm

The symbol of the Justice with Dignity Campaign is a white rose

Attend or Organize a vigil in your community or send a message of support
and or a donation to the Committee to Remember Kimberly Rogers.
