Winnipeg's Women's March on Washington
January 21, 2017 | Alexa Joy
On Saturday January 21, in the heart of downtown Winnipeg, people gathered at Portage Place to participate in the Women's March on Washington - Winnipeg. Hosted by the Women's Health Clinic in association with Black Space Winnipeg, IRCOM, CUPE Local 2348, University of Manitoba Gender Studies Association and other local community organizations gathered to express their solidarity and support. As the founder of Black Space Winnipeg, I emceed the march. Speakers from QPOC, University of Manitoba Gender Studies Association and Mama Bear Clan all spoke on similar narratives of progressive change and the need to represent marginalized voices.
