The Feminists Deliver Working Group, a coalition of BC women's groups that was formed in response to the Women Deliver Conference happening June 3 - 6. Women Transforming Cities is part of the coalition. We are working together to: 1. Shed a light on the urgent issues facing marginalized communities in BC and the grassroots struggles leading the way for transformative change; 2. Build transnational connections between grassroots intersectional feminist movements; and 3. Re-envision the global women’s agenda as one that centers a diversity of grassroots intersectional feminist voices.
Women Transforming Cities is pleased to announce that we have been selected to receive federal funding under the Capacity-Building Fund of the Department for Women and Gender Equality - Women’s Program (formerly Status of Women Canada). This funding will be distributed over the next five years and is perfectly timed to meet our current growth needs. We feel very privileged and humbled to receive this funding. We will be putting the funds to good use growing our organization to create Women Friendly Cities for all. For more information about this and the other recipients in Metro Vancouver
