PHOTOS: Feb. 14/17 Flashmob & Dinner to Honour Lives of Missing & Murdered Women

This Valentine’s Day, Montrealers honoured the lives and memories of women and two-spirit people lost to gendered and racialized violence through a flashmob and community dinner. Through this action, we commemorated women of all backgrounds, giving emphasis to Indigenous women who are the disproportionate targets of this systemic violence.

Speakers and performers:
• Odaya
• Buffalo Hat Singers
• Travelling Spirit
• Viviane Michel, Quebec Native Women (MC)
• Chelsea Obo, Missing Justice (MC)
• Jean Stevenson (opening and closing prayers)
• Nakuset, Native Women’s Shelter
• Nguyễn Nam Chi, Missing Justice
• Agnes Calgo, PINAY
• Marie-Josée Tremblay
• Coline Bellefleur, Canadian Muslim Lawyers Association
