About The Event

Bring a favorite dish to share at a Potluck Supper at 6 pm. Hot drinks will be available. We are rising for justice for the more than 600 murdered and missing aboriginal women of Canada. After enjoying a meal together we will mark this day with ritual and dancing. 10 ft. puppets will lead us in the dancing in the (hopefully) clear winter night. Bring noisemakers. All welcome. A cash donation to support local initiatives for women is appreciated. Come and join this worldwide movement.
