AWO collaborated with a group of community organizations at a Unity Walk in Flemingdon Park and Thorncliffe Park and joined hundreds of community members of all backgrounds to commemorate the untimely passing of the Afzaal family, in London, Ontario that was due to a heinous act of hate and terror.

Thank you to the participation of residents and other community members, old and young who raised their voices in unison and in solidarity, condemning Islamophobia, all forms of racism, discrimination and bigotry.

We are in shock and grief by the loss of lives of a three generations Muslim family by a heinous act of hate and terror.

We stand united by Muslim communities of London and across Canada and condemn Islamophobia.

We are in solidarity with our Muslim friends, neighbours and communities against any and all forms of discrimination, hatred, racism and bigotry.

We call on all progressive Canadians to join forces and put a resounding stop to any acts of Islamophobia and discriminatory practices against the Muslim communities.

Canada is strengthened by its diversity and inclusion.

Hi Afghan Women's Organization, I hope this message finds you well and healthy! Winner of numerous awards, including the most popular Canadian dramatic feature at the 2019 Vancouver International Film Festival, we are excited to let you know that Red Snow will be available for streaming and download on Apple TV beginning May 15th. In addition, on May 19th at 5PM PT/ 8PM ET, Mozhdah Jamalzadsh (cast member) will host an exclusive live Instagram Q&A with Carol Whiteman (executive producer) on Red Snow’s Instagram, something you won’t want to miss. Red Snow is the powerful story of Dylan, a Gwich’in soldier from the Canadian Arctic, who is caught in an ambush in Panjwayi, Afghanistan. His capture and interrogation by a Taliban Commander release a cache of memories connected to the love and death of his Inuit cousin, Asana, and binds him closer to a Pashtun family as they escape across treacherous landscapes and through a blizzard that becomes their key to survival. Watch the trailer now or visit RedSnow.ca to learn more. I’m hoping we can work together to further spread the word as I believe your community will enjoy and appreciate the film as well as the live Q&A. If provided with assets, would you be able to do some social posts or a newsletter letting your community know about the film’s release? If you are interested in working with us further to promote the film or have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to reach out to [email protected]. Thanks so much, The Red Snow Team
