Annual Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women

Saturday, February 14th, at 3pm
Cabot Square, Montreal, Quebec

This march was founded in Vancouver in 1991 by a group of Native women and frontline workers in response to the negligent response by police in the case of the murder of a Coast Salish woman. In it’s 6th year in Montreal, the purpose of the march is to commemorate the lives of missing and murdered women and girls of all backgrounds, but with a
particular emphasis on Native women and girls, as this brutal violence affects their communities disproportionately. The march will also seek to raise awareness among the general population and in the media about the deeply systemic nature of this gendered and racial violence.
