Mission Statement

WILPF members create the peaceful transformation they wish to see in the world by making connections that:
? Provide continuity with the past so that knowledge of historical events and patterns informs current activities for change;
? Create analysis and action that reflect and reinforce each other;
? Link and challenge root causes of oppression, especially racism, sexism, heterosexism, militarism, economic disparity, and political disempowerment; and
? Build and strengthen relationships and movements for justice, peace, and radical democracy

Description

Come join Y-WILPF, an emerging youth branch of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. The Women's International League for Peace and Freedom was founded in 1915 during World War I, with Jane Addams as its first president. WILPF works to achieve through peaceful means world disarmament, full rights for women, racial and economic justice, an end to all forms of violence, and to establish those political, social, and psychological conditions which can assure peace, freedom, and justice for all. We need youth volunteers or "members," under age 35, to help us work towards peace and justice. Membership means you can be as active as you want to be. We need members to be part of our National Campaign Committees where the program and direction of WILPF's work is created. We need members to become involved in WILPF's delegations to the United Nations, to Washington, D.C., and to participate in many activities such as local & regional gatherings and national & international conferences. Y-WILPF meets monthly at the University of Pennsylvania Women's Center and often holds various events throughout the city.
