Women's International League for Peace and Freedom
U.S. Section Vision & Mission
WILPF envisions a transformed world at peace, where there is racial, social, and economic justice for all people everywhere - a world in which:
The needs of all people are met in a fair and equitable manner,
All people equally participate in making the decisions that affect them,
The interconnected web of life is acknowledged and celebrated in diverse ways and communities, and
Human societies are designed and organized for sustainable existence.
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.
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.
