Bandidas Taqueria, a bustling restaurant on Vancouver’s Commercial Drive, regularly fundraises for and donates to causes concerned with human rights and environmental protection. As a thriving female-owned business, it’s important for us to participate in a meaningful way in International Women’s Day.
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: WAVAW, Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, Canadian Council of Muslim Women, Native Women’s Association of Canada, Girls Rock Camp, East Van Roasters, Pads4Girls, and WISH Drop-In Centre Society.
Last year's event raised $3625--help us beat that this year by eating at or ordering food from Bandidas on March 8th.
We’ll also launch an art show that deals with feminist themes. The show will run until April 21st, and a variety of artists will participate.

*We're aware the term "women" can feel exclusive to many people who may not identify as female, but who are also affected by the IWD movement. Non-binary and binary trans folks: we hope you feel safe here, and we welcome you into this dialogue.
