Annual Women’s Memorial March – February 14

Today marks the 20th annual Canada-wide march to commemorate missing and murdered women in Vancouver, many of them Indigenous. This short film documents the 20-year history of the march and dispels some of the negative stereotypes about the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver and the women who live there.
