The Advocacy Committee is led by the Co-Chairs of Advocacy and is responsible for supporting and promoting the mission, vision, purpose and strategic plan of the IIWR-MB. It works in parallel and collaboration with the board, other committees, members, and the public to advance the work related to gender equity and justice through an intersectional lens. The Committee reports on strategies, challenges and needs related to activism and advocacy in the community. It seeks to promote the advocacy work of others, as well as fill gaps through advocacy initiatives created by IIWR-MB. To see some examples of our work, please see our section of the website where you can find some past initiatives as well as our Annual Reports: https://iiwrmb.ca/advocacy/
