Women March On Toronto
On January 19th, Women March On: Toronto invites you to join together in marching, resisting and making it clear to policymakers that we will not accept rollbacks and attacks on our communities.
This march, and this movement, began in solidarity with our sisters in the United States as they demonstrated their resistance to their country’s new leadership. We march to bring awareness to the changes needed to build a safer, more inclusive Toronto. We are doing it again this year.
When: Saturday, January 19th, 12pm-3pm
Where: Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto City Hall
Meet at 11:40 at the North side of Nathan Phillips Square outside the main doors to City Hall.
Our lineup of speakers will address the many egregious cutbacks to government funding and civil rights recently made by our provincial government.
Please note: speakers and performers are not listed in order of appearance.
