Black History Month
Details:

Black History month honours the contributions of people of African descent in Canadian society and is an opportunity to share the history and culture of Black Canadians. Historically, it honours the courage and resolve of trailblazers such as Viola Desmond, who in 1946 changed the conversation about why segregation is contrary to one’s human rights by electing to sit in the “whites only” section of a theater in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Each activist revered during Black History month sent a very public message of what equality meant to them in the face of oppression, racism, and discrimination of that time. Efforts such as these led to a 1995 proclamation by Parliament marking February as Black History Month in Canada. This month, let us stand in solidarity to honour the strength and perseverance of Black Canadians and collectively work towards racial justice.

Women’s Memorial March
Details:

This annual event takes place across the country to call attention to missing and murdered women and in particular, Indigenous women and girls in Canada. Over 3000 women are known to have gone missing or been murdered in Canada since the 1970s.  The march brings courage and commitment to end the violence that vulnerable women in the Downtown Eastside face on a daily basis and is an opportunity to come together to grieve the loss of our sisters, remember the women who are still missing, and dedicate ourselves to justice.
