Lorimer Shenher, International Women’s Day Celebration: “Yes it’s 2016 and there is still work to be done.” 11:30am–1pm, March 4, 2016

Posted on

Please join MP Joyce Murray to celebrate International Women’s Day this year with special guest Lorimer Shenher (aka Lori) Yes it’s 2016 and there is still work to be done.” Lorimer is the amazing police detective who worked for years to secure resources and support to solve the Pickton murders case; years during which more women from Vancouver’s DTES were victimized. He later wrote a book chronicling his experience and deep frustration called That Lonely Section of Hell: The Botched Investigation of a Serial Killer Who Almost Got Away.
In 2015, Lorimer began a gender transition to male. He continues to write and is currently pursuing an MA in Professional Communications at Royal Roads University. His thesis project will be an audio documentary exploring the rise of the missing and murdered indigenous women as a major issue in the 2015 Canadian Federal Election.
Let’s celebrate women’s equality successes achieved, and explore barriers that remain for women, especially disadvantaged women and girls.
 
When: Friday March 4, 2016 from 11:30 – 1:00 pm
Where: MP Joyce Murray Constituency Office. 206 – 2112 W Broadway (at Arbutus) View map
