32nd Annual Women’s Memorial March
February 14th, 2023
Family and community members gather in remembrance at 10:30 am (Main and Hastings)
March starts at 12 pm from Carnegie (Main and Hastings)
Unceded xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) territories.
All COVID-19 protocols are in effect – social distancing and masks are required.
The event will also be fully live-streamed on Facebook and YouTube more info will follow.
The women’s memorial march continues to honour the lives of missing and murdered women and all women’s lives lost in the Downtown Eastside.
When the march takes to the streets and proceeds through the Downtown Eastside, with stops to commemorate where women were last seen or found; speeches by community activists at Main and Hastings; a healing circle at Oppenheimer Park around 2:30 pm; and finally a social distanced community feast at the Japanese Language Hall.
This event is organized and led by women in the DTES because women – especially Indigenous women – face physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual violence on a daily basis.
