The Centre for Women and Trans People 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 and decolonization;
  • providing services such as peer-to-peer crisis intervention, peer counselling, advocacy and 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.

We offer a comfortable lounge with couches and chairs, free phone, computer and Internet access, a fridge, a microwave and good company! Whether you want to debrief with someone about your day or are looking for a place to chill, eat your lunch, catch up on your readings, get involved in our work -- don’t be shy, drop by and check us out!
