Annual Women's Memorial March

Saturday February 14th, 2015 12:30 pm

Strawberry Ceremony with Wanda Whitebird at Toronto Police Headquarters, 40 College Street.

From the website, "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."
