Women's March Canada: Ottawa Chapter
We March Again!
On January 20, 2018 Join us at 12 at Parliament Hill.
Women's March Canada - Ottawa would like to acknowledge that Ottawa is on the traditional territory of the Algonquin, Haudenosaunee and Anishinabek peoples. We keep this acknowledgment at the forefront of our march and thank the Algonquin, Haudenosaunee and Anishinabek peoples for allowing us to gather. And we thank the generations of Indigenous women who have taken care of this land before us and continue to fight for mother nature.
We would also like to make it clear that Women's March Ottawa does not tolerate violence, racism, sexism of any kind including cissexism and heterosexism. We do not support ableism, colonialism or any other forms of oppression. We are striving to create an event that centers the experiences of marginalized communities, especially folks impacted by racism, anti-black racism, colonialism, ableism and transmisogyny. It is intended to celebrate diversity, inclusion and empowerment of ALL who are women!
Importantly, the work of Women's March Canada, and Women's March Ottawa is centrered on Martin Luther King's principles of non-violent protest and peaceful civic demonstrations. If you cannot adhere to the core values, please do not attend our events. If you believe in these principles - we can't wait to see you there!
WE MARCH AGAIN ~ in solidarity with women and human rights groups from across the world we will be marching again to show that the progress made in 2017 was not enough. There is still so much work to do to protect and advance the rights of women, and the rights of all vulnerable citizens in our country.
Women’s organizations in Ottawa with the organizers of last year’s Women’s March invite you to save the date for a timely conversation about women’s issues and practical tools for community organizing and lobbying in Ottawa.
