Because we’re not done yet.

Across Turtle Island (North America) we continue to see a rise in acts of hate. On Saturday, January 20, join us for a women’s march – Defining Our Future – to unite our communities in Toronto and discuss the future of our city, as imagined by young, local activists.

Speakers and performers are not listed in order of appearance.

We come together to recognize the steps that have been taken to make our city more inclusive but continue to resist the hate that threatens, demonizes and insults so many of us – Muslims, Jews, racialized people, Indigenous people, migrants and those with precarious or no legal status, members of the LGBTTQQ2SI communities, disabled people and women.

As we gather on the anniversary of a historical moment in time – that saw millions of people come together for the Women’s March to say no to hate and yes to justice – we must march on and help build the city and world we dream of.

We hope this march inspires you to take action and push for social change and equity for the most marginalized and oppressed among us.

All allies are welcome.
