March together to Honour MMIWG – Main & Hastings

Mon, Feb 14, 2022 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm


You are invited to join Vancouver Unitarians from the IBPOC+Allies group and the Social Justice Team to march together at the 31st annual Women’s Memorial March to honour the lives of the missing and murdered women and all gender-diverse peoples’ lives lost in the Downtown Eastside.

We will meet at the NW corner of Main St. and Hastings at noon on Monday, Feb 14th.

Covid protocols: social distancing and masks required. We will not carry the Vancouver Unitarians sign but signs honouring the women’s lives are welcome.

The march is made possible by donations from individuals and organizations.  The expenses will be $10,000 this year.  You can donate online or by cheque.

Please donate online at https://dewc.ca/donate-online and in the question “Where would you like to give?” please specify the Women’s Memorial March.”

Please make cheques payable to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, and include Feb 14th Women’s Memorial March on the memo line. Mail cheques to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, 302 Columbia St. Vancouver, BC V6A 4J1. All donations over $10 will be gratefully acknowledged with a tax-deductible receipt.
