Feb/14/2010 - 12:00 pm

When: Sunday, February 14, 2009 @ 12 pm
Where: Rally at Police HQ, 40 College St. at Bay
We'll march to the Coroner’s Office, 26 Grenville St

Gathering with food immediately to follow at U of T’s Centre for Women and Trans People (563 Spadina Ave)

If you would like to volunteer during the rally/march please meet us at the U of T’s CWTP at 11am on Feb. 14. If you are unable to attend the rally/march but would like to assist cooking/preparing for the gathering, the CWTP will also welcome volunteers from 11am onward.

To get more involved with No More Silence, there will be a New Volunteers Meeting on Sunday, Feb. 28, from 2pm to 4pm at the CWTP.

Over 500 Indigenous women have been murdered or gone missing – most over the last 30 years – on Turtle Island. We come together in defense of our lives and to demonstrate against the complicity of the state in the ongoing genocide of Indigenous women and the impunity of state institutions and actors (police, RCMP, coroners’ offices and the courts) that prevents justice for all Indigenous Peoples.
