Here at WiTOpoli, our mission is to amplify women’s voices and promote a more inclusive civic discourse for all women. The WiTOpoli blog is now accepting pitches on a rolling basis to help fulfill that mandate, and we want you to send us your ideas! Whether it’s discussing how these issues play out at city hall, in your neighbourhood, at city-wide boards, in terms of civic literacy, or other aspects of your civic life, we want to hear about it!
As our mission states, we want to produce content that showcases how city issues might have different impacts based on gender and other aspects of identity (e.g. race, class, ability, sexuality). We also want to to challenge the ways our existing civic discourse may be hostile to and/or dismissive of women as politicians, media workers and engaged residents. Finally, we want to create inclusive spaces, online and offline, for women and trans people to share ideas and discuss municipal politics and city-building. and support our mandate of making civic discourse more inclusive and accessible to all.
Send us your pitches or posts today, and let WiTOPoli amplify your voice and shed light on issues that matter to you.
Blog posts should be written in a way that is inclusive of and accessible to all our readers.
