Keeping our Elected Accountable and on Track
To ensure that civic initiatives are truly inclusive, we have been reviewing every Council agenda to make sure it has a gendered intersectional lens on key issues. If they don’t we will be at Council speaking out. We urge you to review the biweekly agendas and sign up to speak to motions that don’t have that lens or speak to the issues that are important to you.
Come join us!
There is a lot of momentum and we need more voices to sustain the advocacy!
