Information on the Feminist Campaign School
The Feminist Campaign School is accepting applications for the first cohort of participants. We need great candidates to run for elected seats in municipal elections across BC in 2022. This program ties strong progressive values with representation in order to make deep changes in the leadership of our communities. If you’re underrepresented at local government tables – this can be based on gender, race, immigration status, class or socioeconomic status, disability, or something else entirely – please apply! We have two streams: one for campaign staff and another for people who want to be candidates. Scholarships are available!
The Feminist Campaign School was co-founded by Nadine Nakagawa, City Councilor in New Westminster, and Trudi Goels, current director at Women Transforming Cities. Nadine and Trudi are community engagers, movement builders, and they are putting their experience, knowledge, and energy behind folks who want to lead with progressive values.
