<p>Bandidas Taqueria, a bustling restaurant on Vancouver&rsquo;s Commercial Drive, regularly fundraises for and donates to causes concerned with human rights and environmental protection. As a thriving female-owned business, it&rsquo;s important for us to participate in a meaningful way in International Women&rsquo;s Day.</p>

<p>On March 8th, Bandidas will donate 100% of the profits from the sale of food and drinks to a variety of local organizations which serve women*. Based on a community vote, we will donate proportionately to the the following organizations: <strong><a href="/External.aspx?u=" target="_blank">WAVAW</a></strong>, <strong><a href="/External.aspx?u=" target="_blank">Downtown Eastside Women&rsquo;s Centre</a></strong>, <strong><a href="/External.aspx?u=" target="_blank">Canadian Council of Muslim Women</a></strong>, <strong><a href="/External.aspx?u=" target="_blank">Native Women&rsquo;s Association of Canada</a></strong>,&nbsp;<strong><a href="/External.aspx?u=" target="_blank">Girls Rock Camp</a>, <a href="/External.aspx?u=" target="_blank">East Van Roasters</a>, <a href="/External.aspx?u=" target="_blank">Pads4Girls</a></strong>, and <strong><a href="/External.aspx?u=" target="_blank">WISH Drop-In Centre Society</a>.&nbsp;</strong></p>

<p><strong><a href="/External.aspx?u=">Last year&#39;s event </a></strong>raised $3625--help us beat that this year by eating at or ordering food from Bandidas on March 8th.</p>

<p>We&rsquo;ll also launch an art show that deals with feminist themes.&nbsp;The show will run until April 21st, and a variety of artists will participate.</p>

<p>To get in touch for ideas, sponsorship or anything else, please contact <a href=""><strong>Dana</strong></a></p>

<p>*We&#39;re aware the term &quot;women&quot; can feel exclusive to many people who may not identify as female, but who are also affected by the IWD movement.&nbsp;Non-binary and binary trans folks: we hope you feel safe here, and we welcome you into this dialogue.</p>
