Mourning the victims of domestic violence while raising awareness of the horrors of this antisocial criminal behavior.
If you or someone you know have been affected by family violence or you denounce this antisocial criminal behavior, we invite you to join the 16th Annual Gladys Ricart and Victims of Domestic Violence Memorial Walk—also known as Brides’ March—on Monday, September 26, 2016.
The 2016 March will start gather at 8AM at the Christ Church Washington Heights—4111 Broadway, NY, NY 10033 (Btwn 173 & 174 Street). Marching will start at 10AM. The March will end at Julia de Burgos Latino Cultural Center—1680 Lexington, NY, NY 10029 (Btwn 106 & 105 Street). For the complete Route please visit the March Routepage.
We encourage women to wear white wedding dresses but if you cannot or do not want to march in a wedding dress, please wear All white. If you want to march in a wedding dress but don’t have one, visit the Wedding Dress webpage for information on how to obtain one.
The Brides’ March needs men who denounce domestic violence to join forces in publicly denouncing and raising awareness of this antisocial criminal behavior. Men please dress in All black to represent mourning for those who have lost their lives to this crime.
Everyone is welcomed to bring to the March any size picture of the person(s) whose life was taken as a result of domestic violence. Marchers carry the pictures during the walk and at the Church the pictures are place at the Altar/podium to memorialize those we are remembering during the March.
Join us in remembering Gladys Ricart and the countless other victims, and in raising awareness of the horrors of domestic violence/intimate partner violence/family violence on Monday, September 26, 2016.
