5 ways we work to make cities more equitable
  • Taking action at council, and holding elected leaders to account on issues that impact women and equity deserving genders

  • ​Equipping cohorts of future leaders with the skills needed to start their own community campaigns

  • Offering workshops and trainings to build civic literacy skills and confidence

  • Supporting local governments in working towards reconciliation with Indigenous peoples

  • Running campaigns on critical local issues that effect people made marginalized in our communities

We work in cities, towns, local communities, and neighborhoods. We collaborate locally, nationally, and globally as part of a movement to transform cities. 
We work with equity-deserving genders, including women, girls, trans, genderqueer, non-binary, Two-Spirit, LGBTQIA++ and allies. We are committed to continuing to learn and evolve our understanding, language, and actions around gender inclusion.

 Why Cities?  

Municipal government is the closest level of government to communities. Local governments make policy decisions every day that directly impact equity-seeking genders - including transit, housing, childcare, land planning, use of public spaces, community safety, reconciliation and decolonization.

Cities, towns, local communities, and neighborhoods are an important and often overlooked site of resistance and action in our pursuit of gender, racial, and social equity.

 How We Do It  

Using an intersectional feminist lens*:

  • We educate through workshops, mentorship, and knowledge sharing.

  • We investigate the systemic barriers that prevent equitable civic action and participation. 

  • We advocate for radical policy change that addresses all forms of inequity. 

  • We organize to create a more inclusive and representative local civic system.

  • We collaborate to strengthen our impact.

*We credit Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw with the term and theories of intersectionality, a groundbreaking scholar and writer on civil rights, critical race theory, Black feminist legal theory, race, racism, and law.
