Join WILPF at the Democracy Convention in Madison, Wisconsin, August 7-11 and meet up with members of the Corporations v Democracy, Earth Democracy and DISARM/End Wars Issue Committees and many WILPFers from near and far.
None of us knew the other WILPF members were coming. Heidi recognized me with my END WAR t-shirt. Most of us attended the enthusiastic Women’s Assembly that opened the forum, and several of us took part in a women’s workshop sponsored by Global Grassroots Justice Alliance and the World March of Women.
In December 2012, WILPF joined in the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots. We share the growing concerns about the development of fully autonomous weapons—weapons that will completely remove any human intervention in the decision-making.
North Carolina once was hailed as the Old South’s progressive stronghold… but no more!

Since taking control of the State in January 2013, they’ve lost no time in unleashing an avalanche of regressive and repressive legislation that has left local WILPF members—and folks from throughout the State—reeling.
In our efforts to eliminate nuclear dangers we could well begin with ending the first link in the nuclear chain: mining of uranium. In the US, most of these mines are on Native American lands.
The 2011 National Democracy Convention in Madison, WI was a galvanizing convergence of pro-democracy advocates, environmentalists, economic justice advocates and peace activists. Many attendees called it a life-changing event and dedicated themselves to work towards a 28th Constitutional Amendment.
