WiTOpoli to produce a new event series with Why Should I Care?

Why Should I Care? logo WSIC, with the letters w, s and c in grey, and the i in red with a megaphone coming out of the right sideWhy Should I Care? (WSIC) is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit corporation dedicated to providing a grassroots forum for discussing difficult political issues in a safe and non-partisan environment. Women in Toronto Politics and WSIC are collaborating to produce a series of free discussion-driven events focusing on issues affecting women in Toronto.

The series will take place across Toronto (Scarborough, Downtown/East York, Etobicoke and North York) and will invite speakers to give a brief talk on timely and important issues relevant to women of Toronto. Speakers will support open dialogue with the audience and engage with their questions and comments on the subject matter.

This series is an opportunity for women and allies across the city to explore the issues unfolding in their communities through a gender lens. The WSIC and WiTOpoli teams are committed to fostering non-partisan discussion, and we hope you’ll join us to share your thoughts and engage with your community.

On July 21st from 7:00-9:00pm, the joint WiTOpoli/WSIC series launches with a discussion about the new sex work laws proposed by the Canadian government, how these laws might impact Canadian sex workers and communities, and what alternatives we can explore. RSVP for the discussion on Eventbrite.
