The Next Step March

January 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

March on Vancouver acknowledges that this event will be taking place on the unceded Coast Salish Territories xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh). 

March On Vancouver is proud to host The Next Step March. March On Vancouver invites you to join them this year at Jack Poole Plaza, 1085 Canada Placefrom 10:00 am to 1:00pm. March On Vancouver gathered a year ago on January 21st in a historic march in solidarity with a world-wide movement of grassroots resistance. Now, we March On. 

March On Vancouver have worked hard to combat the rise of white nationalism, misogyny and xenophobia, and know there is still much to be done. Come together to reject the hate that damages our communities – women, Indigenous people, racialized people, Muslims, Jews, members of the LGBTTQQ2SI+ communities, disabled people, migrants and those with precarious or no legal status.

March On Vancouver’s event will be one of positivity, inclusivity and diversity, uplifting all in our community. March On Vancouver hopes to bring you voices you might not have heard from before. March On to support and boost the voices that most need our strength. 

 March On Vancouver uses an inclusive definition of “woman” that includes trans women, gender queer women, two-spirited and non-binary people. Allies are welcome. The event will be disabled-friendly and will include ASL interpreters. 

We are stronger, and better, when we connect and share our strengths to support each other. 

Please joinMarch On Vancouver. Together, we March On!
