The Centre for Women and Trans People (“The Centre”) is a student-funded, collectively-run, volunteer-driven organization at York University. We are committed to creating a welcoming and safer space for all of our members, one that is rooted in challenging settler colonial violence, racism, anti-black racism, xenophobia, islamophobia, anti-semitism, fatphobia, classism, ageism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, misogyny, mysoginoir, transmysoginy, ableism and sanism, discrimination on the basis of religion/spirituality, and institutionalized oppression within the university setting and in the wider community.
We continuously remember, acknowledge and think about our place here on the occupied lands of the traditional territories of the Mississaugas of New Credit, the Huron-Wendat, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Metis Nation of Ontario. As many people before us, with us, and after us have said -‐ North of us, South of us, East and West of us is and always will be Indigenous land. Not only does it inform our work at CWTP but also with our daily interactions with both people & land.
