Woman Abuse Council of Toronto (WomanACT) has been providing coordination, planning and community mobilization in Toronto since 1991. Today, we are a charitable organization with a membership of organizations and individuals working to end violence against women through system change.
WomanACT advocates for a world where all women and gender diverse people live free from violence and have economic security.
WomanACT works collaboratively to eradicate gender-based violence through research, education and advocacy.
Our strategic plan for the next four years is focused on strengthening long-term partnerships with cross-sector partners, including the private sector, and engaging women with lived experience across all areas of our work.
We take an integrated approach to making change. Our goal is to create lasting and systemic change through collaborative and innovative research, education and advocacy.
We are a feminist organization using an intersectional lens to challenge the systems that reinforce inequities.
We support and learn from diverse voices, perspectives and approaches to find effective system responses and solutions.
We work across sectors and with communities to learn from each other and strengthen our collective impact and outcomes.
We value continuous learning and embrace bold and evidence-based solutions that result in meaningful system change.
We value integrity and hold ourselves accountable to our stakeholders and our communities.
