Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women’s March
The 12th Annual Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Indigenous women, two spirit, and gender non-conforming people will be held on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019.
We welcome people of all ages, genders, cultures, and physical abilities to gather in front of the Sault Ste. Marie Courthouse, 426 Queen St. East, beginning at 11:30 a.m., for a memorial event that will include guest speakers, songs, prayers, and other expressions of reverence and solidarity.
We will then march along Queen Street to The Delta Hotel, 208 St Mary’s River Dr., where refreshments will be provided, and a facilitator will encourage storytelling and conversation in a sharing circle. Resources will also be available for those experiencing violence directly or indirectly, and for those who would like to seek counselling services.
The Memorial March originated 27 years ago, on Feb. 14, in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The march calls attention to the disproportionately high numbers of missing and murdered Indigenous women.
