Vanc. BC- Women's March on Washington- Jan 21

Women's March on Washington - Vancouver

The Women’s March Vancouver will run from 10 AM - 12 AM at Jack Poole Plaza on Saturday, January 21, 2017, on the traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. These territories were never ceded through treaty, war or surrender.

We will have music and speakers starting at 10 AM and will then march through prominant Vancouver streets and return back to Jack Poole Plaza for more music and speakers. Those unable to march are welcome to stay at the Plaza.


THIS IS A FREE EVENT. NO TICKET NEEDED. It's just a way for us to get an accurate attendance.

Sign language interpreters will be at the march.

We will mobilize as women and supporters of women to protect our rights and civil liberties.

We stand in solidarity with other women’s marches planned across the country and the world on January 21. WE WILL BE SEEN AND HEARD by the new administration.

We are people of different colors, backgrounds, religious faiths, and politics. We support women’s/human rights. We are activists, seasoned and new. We are people of varying economic, educational, and social situations. We are immigrants of all statuses. We are native and indigenous. We are people of diverse gender identification and sexual identities—LGBTQ2+, hetero, and other. We are of diverse marital status and age. We have varied abilities. We are survivors of trauma.

We are people of diversities more numerous than can be mentioned here, and we stand together to protect each of them. We stand against hate in all forms and against targeting any groups or individuals. For ourselves and others, we express our right to respect and acceptance without bias or persecution.

The mission of Women’s March Vancouver is: CONNECT, PROTECT, ACTIVATE. We CONNECT to support each other in PROTECT-ing and furthering women’s rights and civil liberties. We ACTIVATE in our communities to uphold and strengthen values, rights, and humanity.
