WILPF Colombia, or LIMPAL Colombia, was created in 1998 and is one of WILPF’s most active Sections in South America. WILPF Colombia has been working for 20 years to promote women’s rights and a society based on the principles of peace, freedom, dignity, and social justice. In a country destabilised by violent internal conflict, WILPF Colombia aims to reconstruct the bonds of solidarity within Colombian society and advocate for a peaceful resolution.
Today, WILPF Colombia advocates at both a national and international level for a world free from conflict, and women participate as protagonists in peace processes. Regionally, it is an important promoter of UNSCR 1325. WILPF Colombia also raises awareness of the various resolutions, conventions, and declarations on human and women’s rights to further engage people to claim their rights when these are violated. Finally, at a more regional level, WILPF Colombia works to empower female community leaders and professionals who are engaged in the promotion of human and women’s rights. The Sections organise workshops on violence against women, political participation, conflict management, and disarmament.
