Join us at one of our cafes or events
WTC will build on and refine the intersectional work of Women Transforming Cities through continuing cafes. The Café series will engage and expand stake-holder dialogue and action, bringing together women leaders; urbanists; elected municipal officials; aboriginal, queer, immigrant and refugee-based organisations; young women’s groups; unions; universities; schools; housing advocates; violence against women activists; anti-poverty, child care, and health-based organisations; and others.
Café events will take place in local neighbourhoods at community centres, classrooms and other public locations. The goal is to transform our cities into safe and healthy places where women and their communities live, work and play, are involved in design, development and sustainable operations, with electoral processes and municipal governments that are responsive to the priorities of women and girls.
