Women’s Memorial March

Feminists Deliver and our member organizations will be marching in solidarity with the families and friends of our stolen sisters.

The memorial march continues to honour the lives of our beloved sisters in the Downtown Eastside, and all women’s and gender-diverse peoples’ lives lost in the Downtown Eastside. Indigenous women, girls, two spirit and trans people disproportionately continue to go missing or be murdered with minimal to no action to address these tragedies or the systemic nature of gendered violence, poverty, racism, or colonialism.

This event is organized and led by Indigenous women in the DTES.

Date: Tue, Feb 14

Time: 10.00am-5.00pm PST

Location: Main and Hastings Vancouver
