Join us for an empowering evening as we speak out and march against gender based violence. The event features local speakers and performers, followed by a march through downtown Calgary to symbolize a woman’s right to walk safely at night.
Date: Friday, September 21, 2012
Location: Connaught Park, 11 St & 14 Ave SW Calgary
Time: 8:00 p.m.
Please bring your signs, noise makers, glow sticks, candles, or anything else that catches attention!
And yes, men and children are welcome to attend! Please be aware that we address the issue of violence openly, therefore some material may be inappropriate for young children. During the march it is traditional that women walk unescorted. Men and older boys are welcome to show their solidarity by walking on the sidewalk alongside the women.
