"We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.” - Malala Yousafzai
Canadian women (and allies) have come together in a grassroots effort to support initiatives happening on January 21, 2017 in support of human rights.
As a secular humanist organization, CFI Canada stands up to defend the rights of women, LGBT persons, people of minority faiths and people of no faith.
• When religion is imposed on women’s bodies, we fight back.
• When religion is used as an excuse to discriminate against LGBT persons, we fight back.
• When absence of religion or religious differences are used to justify restricting human rights, we fight back.
CFI Ottawa will join the local march starting at the Human Rights Monument. Everyone is welcome.
