We acknowledge that we are in Treaty 1 territory and that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation.
On January 21st, 2017 we will march.
We will march the same day as hundreds of thousands of women in Washington as they take to the streets – all with a common goal but each with a diverse voice.
We will stand in solidarity with people gathering all over Canada and the world that day in support of women’s rights. We will rally against the divisive words, attitudes and actions sparked by the events of the last year.
We will take a stand and support the rights of ALL women.
This event was sparked by Trump’s election to the White House – and we will march to show that the anger, fear, sexism, and racism he provoked through his campaign will not be tolerated.
But we recognize that even in Canada – we still have so much work to do. This march will serve as a platform for women in our most marginalized communities to speak and be heard.
We are committed to inclusion and welcome everyone from all walks of life. We invite people from all genders, races, abilities, religious communities, political affiliations and sexual orientations.
Unite with us. Stand in solidarity.
