About Us

The Centre for Women and Trans People (“The Centre”) is a student-funded, collectively-run, volunteer-driven organization at York University. We are a progressive, pro-choice, anti-racist, queer-positive, trans-positive, feminist organization committed to:

  • breaking the social isolation that women and trans people face on campus through programming, socials and networking events
  • individual and collective empowerment through esteem-building, education & decolonization
  • providing services such as peer-to-peer crisis intervention, peer counselling & referrals from a feminist, anti-oppressive framework
  • acting as a resource base for understanding, exposing and organizing on issues around gender violence and social justice
  • creating working relationships between students and the University administration, where students are directly involved in developing programs and policies that make the campus safer for everyone
  • developing a culture of resistance and celebration by supporting initiatives by local artists
