The CWTP is an inclusive space to meet, share, create and organize with people from the Trent, Nogojiwanong/Peterborough communities who share a commitment to our mandate. The CWTP is committed to community-based care and mutual aid and in finding ways to redistribute resources to those affected by gender based oppression. Within an intersectional framework, the Centre aims to prioritize the needs of BIPOC and those who are most marginalized by the patriarchy and cishetero-normativity in our community, whether through creating social spaces or resources and advocacy. We use a social justice model that is informed by a holistic understanding of anti-oppression and feminist politics. This model aims to recognize the ways in which ideas and experiences of gender are shaped by racism, colonialism, classism, ableism, cis-heteronormativity and all other forms of oppression. Where possible we will approach our work within a harm reduction lens and opt for restorative justice practices over carceral feminism.
