Until then, here are a few other upcoming things to keep you busy:
Annual Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Women
Friday, February 14th @ 6:00pm, Place Emilie Gamelin (near Berri-UQAM)
Justice for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (Missing Justice) invites you and yours to come out and show your love on Valentine’s Day by coming out to this year’s Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Women on Friday February 14th, 6pm at Place Emilie Gamelin (Berri Metro, corner Berri & Ste. Catherine).
The first women’s memorial march was held in 1991 in response to the murder of a First Nations Coast Salish woman on Powell Street in Vancouver. Out of this sense of hopelessness and anger came an annual march on Valentine’s Day to express compassion, community, and caring for all women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Unceded Coast Salish Territories.
Building Bridges Through Understanding: 
An Experiential Workshop on Colonization and Reconciliation
Friday, February 21st from 9:00am-5:00pm, Downtown YMCA Centre Ville, Montreal
Hosted by Canadian Roots Exchange
Geared to solutions and healing rather than recrimination , and inspired by Jann Derrick’s teachings of ‘The Circle and The Box,’ and by many Elder’s teachings, this experiential workshop, will help participants to better understand traditional Aboriginal ways and values as well as our personal role in supporting their revival. It will also explore the affects of Residential Schools and Canada’s Policy of Assimilation. This workshop is a great forum in which to ask questions and is done from a non-blame and non-shame perspective.
THE FACILITATOR: Kathi Camilleri is an Aboriginal woman from British Columbia who has worked coordinating healing programs in the Aboriginal Community for 16 years
**This workshop is FREE and is open to all youth aged 30 years old and under, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous
** lunch will be served provided and SPACE IS LIMITED
