Justice for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women invites you and yours to attend, spread the word about, and participate in this year’s Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Women on Tuesday February 14th, 5:30pm at Cabot Square (St.Catherine and Atwater).
The first women’s memorial march was held in 1991 in response to the murder of a Coast Salish woman on Powell Street in Vancouver. Her name is not spoken today out of respect for the wishes of her family. Out of this sense of hopelessness and anger came an annual march on Valentine’s Day to express compassion, community, and caring for all women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Unceded Coast Salish Territories.
Twenty one years later, the women’s memorial march continues to honour the lives of missing and murdered women.
This year, Montreal holds it’s 3rd Annual Memorial March.
