We march in solidarity…

The Nova Scotia Federation of Labour gives our full and heartfelt solidarity with this intersectional feminist movement and with the local community organizers in our province and across the Country. We will March with people of all genders, ages, races, abilities, backgrounds, and orientations at the 2018 Women’s March. Together the members of the labour movement in Nova Scotia march because we are inspired by the truly grassroots beginnings of this day of action, and the principles outlined by the organizers:

The mission of Women’s March is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change. Women’s March is a women-led movement providing intersectional education on a diverse range of issues and creating entry points for new grassroots activists & organizers to engage in their local communities through training, outreach programs and events. Women’s March is committed to dismantling systems of oppression through nonviolent resistance and building inclusive structures guided by self-determination, dignity and respect (from the Women’s March website).
