Cities Organize!

WTC’s Cities Organize! training cohort based program is a six-week course that demystifies issue-based advocacy and campaigning for people interested in change-making in their local communities. The program is based off our learnings after 10 years of working in Vancouver to promote policies and programs that address all forms of inequity.


After joining a Cities Organize! program, participants are equipped with the skills and knowledge required to start their community organizing journey.

Topics Covered

Power, Intersectionality, Accessibility, Decolonization
Campaign Strategy & Community Engagement
Media, Outreach & Content Creation 
Municipal/Local Government & Civic Engagement
How to bring personal experiences to community work
How to care for yourself as an organizer
