We are extremely disappointed by the City of Vancouver’s intent not to fund our public education work and the message it sends to the women who seek out a women-only group as part of their resistance to male violence.

On March 14, 2019, at the end of a flawed and unfair process, Vancouver City Council voted to terminate the yearly grant given to us in support of our public education work.

We applied for the grant again this year to make it clear that all levels of government have an obligation, and should be proud, to fund the equality-seeking work of independent women’s groups. Read our statement from 2019.
