This year, we will be focusing our efforts on Truth and Reconciliation as we recognize the staggering number of Indigenous women and girls disproportionately affected, victimized, missing, or murdered as a result of violence. Indigenous women in Canada are three times more likely to have acts of sexual and intimate partner violence committed against them than non-Indigenous women. These are realities that require our immediate attention in order to shift the current trajectory and build a safe community for women and people of all genders to live, work, and play.
Regina is on Treaty 4 territory, traditional homeland of the Cree, Dene, Lakota, Nakota, Dakota, Salteaux, and the Métis Nation. We give thanks to these groups for being stewards of this land for generations and we acknowledge this land as providing for other Indigenous groups and peoples who moved through here as well. We are humbled by the opportunity to live, grow, play, and work here, and we affirm our commitment to recognizing the historical and ongoing harms and to honouring the spirit of peace and friendship.WHENJanuary 19, 2019 at 10amWHEREYWCA Regina

Krystal Kolodziejak commented on We Need to Talk About Financial Abuse 2018-08-17 22:04:14 -0400I completely agree and was once in a similar situation. Despite having a big difference in salaries, I was expected to pay half for everything rather than an equitable share. It meant having a second job for me despite the other professional job that I also had during the week.

Needless and Cruel
"The administration's policy of separating children from their families as they attempt to cross into the United States without documentation is not only needless and cruel, it threatens the mental and physical health of both the children and their caregivers," the American Psychological Association said in a statement.
Children are being ripped from their parents and housed in tent cities or caged in an abandoned Walmart. It is not only unconstitutional but a humanitarian crisis.
As outsiders are not permitted to address the House, petitions must be presented by Members. Therefore, petitioners must send their petition to a Member asking the Member to present it on their behalf. Women's March Canada will be requesting that an MP to be named will present this position to the House of Commons. To be certified a petition must include 500 valid signatures. For electronic petitions, an e-mail address, full name, postal code and phone number must be provided.
What can we do outside the US?
If in Canada and you are furious that the US is placing children in internment camps, essentially being used as political pawns, and violating both human rights and international law, here's how to take action:
- sign this petition
- visit our Facebook post above to:
- learn how to contact your local MP:
- find what to say (many of our followers have shared what they've emailed to their local MPs);
- then tag your local MP in a comment on the post;
- share and "like" the post with your friends on Facebook to spread the word.
It takes less than 10 minutes to share your voice for these children. Please do so now.
For the sake of humanity, it’s time to act. We, the undersigned citizens (or residents) of Canada draw attention to the House to the following that, the US Administration has directed its Homeland Security to send “100 percent of illegal southwest border crossings” to the US Justice Department to be prosecuted. When undocumented parents are criminally prosecuted, their children are automatically declared unaccompanied minors, detained and transferred into government custody—despite the fact that they have loving parents who desperately want to stay with them, parents who brought them to the United States in search of a better and safer life.
Therefore, we call upon Parliament to renounce these actions, to call on the United Nations to demand that US immigration agencies stop the implementation of any policy that separates children and youth from their families, and that the US Administration enlist qualified social service agencies to ensure the well-being of children who are still in their custody, or have gone missing. We urge the Government of Canada to speak up on behalf of your constituents in renouncing these actions.
We must show the world that #CanadaCares

First, we marched. Now, we move forward.
On January 21, thousands of Canadians, many of us waving signs and wearing pointy-eared pink hats, gathered in cities and towns across the country to show solidarity with the massive Women’s March in Washington.
Help us have consistent, year-round funding, donate monthly.
Today, our mission is to inspire, unite and lead the charge for the advancement of women across Canada. Our vision is to make equality of women in Canada the new norm.
All dollars raised will support Women's March Canada efforts moving forward. At this time, Women's March Canada, while registered as a not for profit organization, is not a registered charity and we are unable to issue official donation receipts for income tax purposes.
Our organization needs community support to keep going!Donate
