Put June 1 - 5 on your spring calendar for a trip to the 31st U.S. WILPF Congress. Expanding on the theme of End War: Local 2 Global, the congress will be held on the campus of the University of North Carolina, in the vibrant university town of Chapel Hill, hosted by the Triangle branch, all aglow from their successful 75th anniversary celebration this past December.
WILPF began with women of the world working for peace – to mediate, to bring an end to war and the suffering and carnage. We work today to carry forth their legacy. We follow the footsteps of Jane Addams and Emily Greene Balch, rolling up our sleeves to get things done at Congress 2011 - we are showcasing the HOW, WHAT, WHEN, and WHERE our WILPF work is done effectively. Come and learn and share!
