This Sunday: Join the El Barrio/East Harlem Contingent of the Brides’ March to Raise Awareness About Domestic Violence

This Sunday, September 26th, please join us in the El Barrio/East Harlem Contingent of the 10th Annual Brides’ March to raise awareness about the devastating effect that domestic violence has on our community.  We will begin our march on 96th Street and 3rd Avenue at 1:30 p.m.

The Brides’ March commemorates the murder of Gladys Ricart, who was killed by an abusive ex-boyfriend on the day she was to marry her fiancé.  For this reason, we encourage women to wear a wedding gown, white clothes and/or a veil, and that men wear black to represent mourning. We will provide veils for the ladies on a first-come, first-served basis.

The march will end at the Julia de Burgos Cultural Center on Lexington Avenue between 105th and 106th Streets, where a closing ceremony will be held.
