The Trans Feminist Action Caucus (TFAC) is an autonomous body of CUPE 3903 that consists of all women, trans, gender queer and gender variant members of the Local.
TFAC works in coalition other relevant critical feminist organizations on campus in an effort to improve the position of all women, trans, gender queer and gender variant people at York University and within the labour movement. To this end, TFAC defines ‘sexism’ to include any type of gender or sex based discrimination or oppression. With this we also recognize that other factors such as race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family status and/or ability, may exacerbate discrimination on the basis of sex.
TFAC would like to congratulate Navi Dhanota and welcome them as the new TFAC Co-Chair to serve alongside Bridget Liang in the upcoming 2020-2021 year.
Gratitude is also extended to Stephanie Jonsson for running for the position. It’s always exciting to see a lot of interest in this important executive position.
