Street/Event: Annual February 14th Women’s Memorial March

One of the things I look forward to the most every Feb 14th isn’t Valentines day as I don’t need a holiday to love my special lady more (seeing as every day I should be doing that), but the Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Women from the Downtown East Side of Vancouver. It’s a very powerful event, and I am honored to have been a part of it through my camera three of the last four years. It’s one of those days that you can tell lifts a heavy burden off the shoulders of survivors, and fills the hearts of friends, family members of the DTES women, and a large contingent of complete strangers intent on showing their solidarity. I’ll end on that, and let the photos speak for themselves.
