Transforming the places we live so that everyone can belong.
After months of community engagement to better understand the needs of women, girls, and those made marginalized by their gender, we presented a list of eight policy asks to all candidates for the City of Vancouver Council & Mayor from major municipal parties.
Our report card displays how each candidate responded to our policy asks. The real work will take place over the next four years holding candidates accountable for their commitments.

Our candidate panel that asked municipal candidates to respond to questions based on the key issues we heard from our community engagement process during our Hot Pink Paper campaign. We asked 17 candidates from the 10 major municipal parties questions about:
Vancouver City budget
SROs and the DTES
Indigenous self-determination & UNDRIP
Poisoned drug crisis
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.
