About meThe 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, advocacy & 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!

About my libraryAre you tired of reading Eurocentric jargon-filled theory in your courses? Need access to community resources that you can’t find in Scott Library? Do you swoon over radical alternative libraries? We need your help!

The Centre for Women and Trans People’s resource library is undergoing a major makeover. We are looking for non-academic, accessible resources that center trans activism and radical 'disability' movements. We are also interested in materials that have a strong focus on Indigenous resistance, queer uprisings and social justice movements led by communities of colour. We want to introduce a variety of radical audio books, cds, zines, graphic novels, magazines, DVDs, poetry and books built on your collective input.
