Women's March Victoria acknowledges that we are gathering on the unceded territory of the Lekwungen speaking peoples. We acknowledge that the Songhees and Esquimalt nations have stewarded these lands and waters since time immemorial. We live, work, and play on Lekwungen and Saanich territories. These peoples have never stopped stewarding the land, and we all have a better quality of life due to the work they’ve done and continue to do.
This year we will gather at the BC Legislature Building at 11am have an Indigenous acknowledgement ceremony at 11:20am and then meet the organizing team of Women's March Victoria. Together we will march to Centennial Square at 11:45am, where we will meet grassroots organizers from our communities.
This is a trans-inclusive event. All genders welcome!
