DATE: Saturday, January 21st, 2017

PLACE: Centennial Square, 645 Fisgard Street, on the unceeded lands of the Lekwungen speaking peoples.

Details from the Facebook event page(EVENT LINK):
“For those of you who can’t travel to DC for this important march, please join us in Victoria while we support our neighbours to the south.

The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to their new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We invite people of all genders, backgrounds, and cultures to stand up for women, indigenous people, queers, and marginalized minorities everywhere.

The Rally will be followed by a march.”
