Event Description

Scroll below for information on memorial marches in other communities

Over the years, the February 14th Women’s Memorial March has expanded to cities across these lands, as well as internationally. The March is an opportunity for all cities and communities to come together to grieve the loss of our beloved sisters and remember the women who are still missing. We encourage all women to journey and heal together by organizing memorials on this day because women face physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual violence on a daily basis. Violence against women is always unacceptable; every life is precious and we must continue to honour and work for justice for murdered and missing women.

If you are organizing a memorial please email us the details at hwalia8@gmail.com so we can maintain communication, compile the information here on our website, and build strength in our coordinated efforts. Thank you all for your support and commitment.
