Become a City Councillor for a day
On Saturday June 4th, from 2pm to 4pm I am co-hosting an event with Equal Voice National Capital Region (EVNCR) called They Govern. They Govern gives young women, girls, gender-diverse and gender non-binary youth in Ottawa the opportunity to become City Councillors for the day. If you, or someone you know, is interested in city issues, or has a passion for politics and civic engagement, this program is a great opportunity.
The goal of They Govern is to provide participants with hands-on experience in municipal politics. Participants will get the chance to debate issues that are important to our city during a mock city council meeting and will also hear from municipal leaders about their own experiences.
Those interested can apply to participate here. Registration deadline has been extended to June 1.
