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 under-represented communities through a feminist, intersectional lens.

Resources: Understanding Local Government

Local governments make decisions every day that impact who our cities work for. These choices affect housing options, locations of childcare centres, and which of our city streets have bike lanes.

 

If you want to understand how local governments work, your opportunities to participate, or how to impact decision-makers — WTC has resources to help!
