As a WILPF branch, we are part of a community of experienced activists, linked with sisters in over 35 countries. As a public, united face, we speak out about how policies and politics affect women and families. Internationally and on local issues, we see the connections among issues and confront the roots of war and injustice.
We share resources, learn from experts, and engage with our sisters during the monthly ONE WILPF conference calls. Our members represent us on issue committees and participate in strategic planning. We hold monthly meetings and publish a digital newsletter.
We also partner and collaborate with our allies, both locally and globally to promote and uphold the WILPF perspective through education, publications, non-partisan political actions, lobbying and public forums.
