March planned in Toronto for anniversary of Women’s March on Washington

Jan 4 2018, 3:37 am

Gathering on the anniversary of the massive Women’s March on Washington that took place in January 2017, Torontonians will again march on City Hall.

Dubbed “Women March On: Defining Our Future,” the 2018 event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, January 20 at noon at Nathan Phillip Square.

While speakers have yet to be announced, the march aims to “unite our communities in Toronto and discuss the future of our city, as imagined by young, local activists.”

The Facebook page for the event goes on to declare that:

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.

Women March On: Defining Our Future

When: Saturday, January 20, 2018, noon
Where: Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West, Toronto
