Transforming the places we live so that everyone can belong.
After months of community engagement to better understand the needs of equity-deserving genders, we presented a list of policy asks to candidates for the City of Vancouver Council & Mayor from the ten largest municipal parties.
Over the next four years we will continue to ensure that the voices and experiences of those made most marginalized are heard and considered in the decision making process.
We will continue to work in coalitions, act on priority issues for our community, organize at critical moments, build the civic participation skills of community groups, and we will be at every council meeting to hold this council accountable to the policy pledges they've made.
Who is Women Transforming Cities?
Women Transforming Cities (WTC) is a grassroots organization based in Vancouver, Canada.
We’re here to empower, center, and amplify the voices of those made most marginalized by the systems we are fighting to dismantle.
The work of WTC in Vancouver takes places on the stolen ancestral territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. We acknowledge the leadership of Indigenous women for time immemorial, and seek to learn and unlearn our own colonial practices as we work in cities as sites of resistance.
Join our community of incredible changemakers who are contributing their energy, gifts, and passions to making the places we live more equitable and sustainable. You don’t need to know anything about community organizing, you just need to know what’s important to you.
