On March 8, Winnipeg will celebrate the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day by holding a march, organized by numerous community organizations and individuals.
At 4:30 pm at The Union Centre, 275 Broadway, four speakers (Mae Louise Campbell, Perla Javate, Heather Bishop and Louise Simbandumwe) will open the event.
The march will start at 5:30 pm and finish at the University of Winnipeg Bulman Centre.
Attendees are encouraged to wear white, black, yellow, or red.
Winnipeg’s march will include
chants by the Radical Cheerleaders
a visual representation of women uniting in solidarity at the Legislature
a performance by the Raging Grannies
a community feast at the University of Winnipeg’s Bulman Centre
Hope to see you there!
We are planning on making a human circle on the steps of the Manitoba Legislature in the four colours of the medicine wheel. We need approximately 10 people for each colour. You would be given a t-shirt of the colour you are to represent.
If you already have one, great!
