Special General Meeting
The objective is to present the results of the consultation on feminist concerns and engagements on urban issues and to adopt the platform of feminist demands for the right to the city.
Over the past few months, we have conducted a two-part consultation to map feminist concerns and engagement on urban issues:
- The Feminists for the Right to the City webinar series, which allowed us to engage with organizations that are carrying out feminist and intersectional analysis and actions to transform Montreal. Nearly 300 people listened to and discussed with the 22 panelists from 19 groups.
- The Montreal Feminists What City Do We Want for Tomorrow? questionnaire surveyed Montreal organizations on their concerns, commitments and feminist tools to take action on urban issues. 47 TGFM members and non-members responded.
The meeting will be an opportunity to present the results of the consultation, but especially to adopt a platform of feminist demands for the right to the city. This platform targets actions and demands for
- Be able to move freely within the city and neighborhoods
- Access and maintain affordable, safe, adequate and appropriate housing
- Living in neighborhoods that offer a good quality of life
- Move out of poverty and into good working conditions
Each of these broad demands incorporates cross-cutting concerns such as health and safety, accessibility and inclusion, climate justice, etc.
In short, mark your calendars for Thursday, February 10 from 1-4pm! Details on how to get there will follow.
This meeting is for TGFM members. It's never too late to join our movement!
