Fraser Valley Marches for Women was founded by Ann Davis Transition Society executive director Patti MacAhonic and held its first march in January 2017 in solidarity with the demonstrators that descended on Washington, D.C. to raise awareness of women’s rights, also in response to the city turning down a women’s shelter when women were dying on our streets in winter in late 2016. We are more than a march—we’re a movement. The goal of subsequent marches in the Fraser Valley is to support Women’s rights locally and globally, while raising awareness of local issues.
