Hundreds of people marched through the streets of Victoria Saturday for the annual Stolen Sisters Memorial March.

In Victoria, hundreds of aboriginal women and supporters marched down Government Street to the legislature, coming together to remember their “stolen sisters.” “Our main focus for the [Stolen Sisters] memorial march is that people will be able to come together and honour the women we’ve lost, and give space to community healing,” said organizer Jessica-Dawn Humphries ahead of the event. “We don’t want to forget the lives we’ve lost, but we also want to find solutions for the future.”
