Women's March 2019
Because we will NOT go back.
On January 19th, Women March On: Toronto invites you to join together in marching, resisting and making it clear to policymakers that we will not accept rollbacks and attacks on our communities.
This march, and this movement, began in solidarity with our sisters in the United States as they demonstrated their resistance to their country’s new leadership. We march to bring awareness to the changes needed to build a safer, more inclusive Toronto. We are doing it again this year.
Our lineup of speakers will address the many egregious cutbacks to government funding and civil rights recently made by our provincial government.
Please note: speakers and performers are not listed in order of appearance.

The Call to Action will be led by $15 and Fairness.
We’re very excited about this lineup and will be sharing bios to highlight the work of our speakers soon.
Confirmation of the march route is being finalized and will be available soon, along with an updated Accessibility Plan. Accessibility vans and ASL interpretation will be provided at the march.
All allies are welcome.
Please note that not all details are final and as mentioned above we will post updates here as they become available. If you have any questions or concerns or you’d like to volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
