We are not ready to put away their protest signs just yet...are you?
On January 21, 2017, tens of thousands of Canadians took to the streets from coast to coast, and in Washington, D.C., joining together to defend women’s equality and other causes. We know there are events across the country that women and allies need to know about. Our mission is to inspire, unite and lead the charge for the advancement of women across Canada. Any time women gather with a collective intention, it's a powerful thing. Let's see this happen across Canada!
We welcome you to the third annual Women's March in Fredericton!
We will be meeting at 1:00pm at the Fredericton City Hall, where there will be brief speeches before the march. Afterwards, we will have a panel discussion, feminist fair, and more at the Fredericton Public Library, from 2:00pm until 4:30.

Join us to march for justice and equality in Kamloops!
We invite you to join us to march in solidarity resisting gender-based violence, colonization and all other forms of oppression and to promote the realization of a welcoming community inclusive of race, gender, orientation, class, age or ability.
We want to acknowledge that we will be gathering on the unceded territory of the K'omoks First Nation and that the folks who collaborated to organize this event are settlers, grateful to live, laugh and love here.
Nanaimo Women March On would like to acknowledge that Nanaimo is the traditional territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation. We keep this acknowledgement and respect for the Coast Salish people at the forefront of our march and thank the Snuneymuxw nation for allowing us to gather.
A major goal of Nanaimo Women March On 2019 is to encourage local community building and to make and amplify calls to action on the issues that affect women most.
We see January 19th as an extension of the work we do before and after that day: we hope this annual women's march is a recognition of movement building.
We encourage and aim for grassroots, collaborative, inclusive, transparent and non competitive modes of organizing. When possible, we strive for rotating leadership so that many voices can be heard.
We support March On, the Women's March, and anyone organizing to realize a peaceful, intersectional march in service of gender justice, anti-racism, decolonization, LGBTQ2+, and diversity in age and disability.
We believe in communities. We believe survivors. We welcome allies. Feminism is love.
