CFN CEO to Speak at Calgary Women's March


A Washington march in support of women’s rights will take place on January 21st and Calgary is getting in on the action. Organizers will stage a rally in downtown Calgary on Jan. 21 at 1 p.m. The event is one of about 10 across Canada.

CFN CEO Anila Lee Yuen will be join the roster of speakers that includes Calgary’s Poet Laureate Micheline Maylor and local comedian and activist Adora Nwofor, all of whom are coming together in solidarity to rally in the spirit of equality, diversity and inclusivity. The event also serves as reminder that the rights, freedoms and sense of safety we cherish must not be taken for granted. People will gather to say loudly we do not tolerate discrimination. People will gather to support women and all who are targets of hatred and closed minds. Above all else, people will come together in the name of community.
