It has been my pleasure to serve as the Director of Operations of WILPF US Section. What a journey it has been!
This organization has gone through many changes over the past century, but the fundamental principles have remained the same: commitment to peace, with racial, social, economic and environmental justice for all people everywhere. WILPF has had to be resilient and adaptable in order to survive 100 years, and thus it is necessary for the WILPF US Section to adapt to meaningful 21st -century activism. What would that look like?
We, the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom - United States Section (WILPF US), have signed the Declaration of Peace organized by World Beyond War, a new international coalition which represents “a global non-violent movement to end war and establish a just and sustainable peace.”
The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, U.S. Section (WILPF-US), joins with Amnesty International and the U. S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation to call upon Congress “to suspend transfers of munitions, weapons, crowd control devices and military training to Israel.”
We, the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom – United States Section, reiterate that peace comes from the people on the ground developing their own democratic institutions. There is no military solution to the situation in Iraq.
We, the members of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, United States Section, welcome the formation of a Palestinian Unity Government, as announced on Monday, June 2, 2014. It has been a long time since all voices have been heard in that troubled land, and negotiations for peace have been undermined due to that fact. We are also pleased that the U.S. government has agreed to listen to all of the voices.
