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
· Build and strengthen relationships and movements for justice, peace, and radical democracy

WILPF International celebrates its 100th Anniversary this year and Triangle WILPF celebrates our 80th Anniversary. WILPF was created during war time in order to address the root causes of violence in our world - and today faces unprecedented challenges.
We couldn’t have made it through 80 years without the support of our many friends and allies. We invite you to join us for dinner, discussion, and song.
PLEASE RSVP so so can get a headcount for dinner. We hope you can join us for this special event!
WILPF supports Moral Mondays and the Forward Together Movement of protest against the extremist legislative attacks on the people, the environment, and the democratic processes of our state. Numerous WILPF members have already exercised our constitutional right to petition the legislature with our grievances and been arrested along with almost 100 friends and allies from across the state- and the number is growing. Other WILPF members and friends have joined the thousands of North Carolinians rallying on Moral Mondays. Triangle WILPF, a member of the HKonJ Coalition, encourages all our members and friends to support and participate in this growing movement.
