Women’s Memorial March | February 14th

In January 1992 a woman was murdered on Powell Street in Vancouver. Her murder was the catalyst that moved women into action. Out of this sense of hopelessness and anger came an annual march on Valentine’s Day to express compassion, community, and caring for all women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The February 14th Women’s Memorial March is a time to come together to grieve the loss of our beloved sisters, remember the women who are still missing, and to dedicate ourselves to justice.

All are welcome to join us

Wear red, bring your drums & singing voices and walking shoes.

Red Dress Day | May 5th

Red Dress Day was inspired by the 2010 exhibition by Jamie Black of lone red dresses at the University of Winnipeg. The dresses symbolized the many Indigenous women who have lost their lives to violence. Now, people all across the country come together to support the families of Missing and Murdered Indigenous loved ones by wearing red or hanging red dresses.

All are invited to join

Bring your drum, your voices and your red dresses

Annual Tears to Hope Relay Run

The annual Tears to Hope Relay Run aims to bring awareness to the on-going national crisis of MMIWG. The in-person event is a 10km relay run, taking place in picturesque Northern BC, from Prince Rupert, Gingolx, Smithers & Kitimaat Village, ending in Terrace, BC. The virtual option allows you to Run or Walk, 5K or 10K, from wherever you are.

Orange Shirt Day | September 30th

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission travelled across Canada, listening to the stories of survivors and family members of survivors of Indian Residential Schools. Those stories led to 95 calls to action.

In May of 2021, the T’kemlups te Secwepemc confirmed what survivors had been saying all along. That 215 unmarked graves were found at the Kamloops Residential School. This shocked many Canadians. Tears to Hope lead a vigil called Tears for the Children, Hope for the Future. Like our MMIWG, we remember the children who didn’t make it home. And we honour those who survived.

All are invited to join

Wear your Orange Shirt, bring your drum, compassion and your singing voices.
