Transforming

where we live so that everyone can belong, participate and thrive.
Women Transforming Cities (WTC) is a grassroots non-profit organization based in Vancouver, Canada working to dismantle intersecting systems of oppression with equity-deserving genders and movements. We do this by building the participation and power of people historically excluded from civic processes and decision-making to radically shift power to women and under-represented communities through a feminist, intersectional lens.

2023 was another huge year for WTC. Check out the report below to see what our community has been up to!
