Mandate:

Intersections: A Resource Centre for Marginalized Genders is currently the only student-run, feminist organization on campus, funded by both MUN Student’s Union and Student Affairs and Services. We are dedicated to creating a space on campus where marginalized genders can rest, discuss, find resources/services, and connect with other like-minded people.

Target Population:

Anyone, regardless of their gender, can come get resources at anytime. In saying this, Intersections will typically reserve the sitting/socializing area for people of marginalized genders. (i.e., anyone that does not identify as cisgender male).
