One Billion Rising Canada: February 14 is reserved for Indigenous women
Because VDay did not do a press release and only posted a small blurb at the bottom of a random page on their website about February 14th and the missing and murdered Indigenous women’s memorial marches, let me create a reminder.
February 14th is a significant day in Canada for Indigenous women and VDay has instructed activists and organizers to move One Billion Rising events to March 8th, 2014.

For more information on the missing and murdered Indigenous women memorials and marches that have historically taken place on February 14th,  please see:
