Past Hot Pink Paper Campaigns

We've led two successful Hot Pink Paper Campaigns (HPPC) to amplify the voices of communities who are otherwise not heard in the election process, and hold the Mayor and council to account on their commitments to make Vancouver a city where everyone can thrive.

2018 Commitments

 

These were the asks in 2018 of elected representatives.

Resources from Hot Pink Pathways to a Women-Friendly Vancouver (June 2018)


Thank you to all who attended the Hot Pink Pathways to a Women-friendly Vancouver Event! We had nearly 100 people at the event! We explored opportunities and barriers to women’s political participation in Vancouver and the hot button issues for this election season. The event consisted of two segments. First, our panel spoke to their civic engagement experiences, and the municipal issues they see as key to women’s success. From there, we broke out into a discussion of top election issues, and what municipal candidates can do to make Vancouver work for women and girls. We would also like to thank to our panel speakers for sharing ! Shauna Sylvester and Wai Young, Mayoral candidates; Carrie Bercic, School Board Trustee; Diana Day, School Board Trustee candidate; Adrianne Carr and Melissa DeGenova, City Councillors; and Niki Sharma, former Park Board Chairperson.
