The February 14th Annual Women's Memorial March was started in 1991 in Vancouver, BC, in response to the murder of a Coast Salish woman on Powell Street. Since that date, there have been marches held every year to honour the lives of missing and murdered women. Please come join your President and a number of your fellow activists in supporting this women-organized, women-led event, as an opportunity to come together to grieve, to remember the women who are still missing, and to dedicate ourselves to justice.
When: Saturday February 14th 2015 at 12:00pm
Where: Carnegie Community Centre, 401 Main Street (corner Hastings, Vancouver)
March route proceeds through the Downtown Eastside and will make stops to commemorate where women were last seen or found, followed by speeches by community activists at the Courthouse. There will be a healing circle at Oppenheimer Park at around 2:30 pm; and finally a community feast at the Japanese Language Hall.
Please note that there will be no Union flags, leaflets or banners at this event.
