KELOWNA WOMEN'S MARCH
Since January 2017, Women's Marches have taken place around the world to commemorate the importance of fighting to protect the rights of women, girls, and gender equality. These marches also defend the rights of Indigenous Peoples, people with disabilities, LGBTQ2SI communities, the environment, immigration, workers, and in fact, justice and liberation for all marginalized peoples.
Kelowna's March is on January 19, 2019, starts on 11:30 at the Dolphins, up to Kerry Park and back to the Dolphins.
