Dear Members and Friends of WAND,

We invite you to attend our Annual Membership Meeting by Zoom on January 24th at 3:00pm to 4:30pm.

The link to the Zoom meeting will be posted also be posted on our Facebook page.

We also encourage you to renew your membership by returning the enclosed envelope with your check. You may also renew at here on this website.

We are especially excited that Medea Benjamin, Founder of CODEPINK and author of 10 books, primarily on the Middle East, will be our speaker. She has worked on peace and justice issues over 40 years, traveled extensively, and has won numerous awards for her work in many parts of the world. Her vision for the future will inspire us to use our power as women, to disarm the patriarchy, and demand diplomacy not war. CODEPINK women use their power strategically on many fronts including today’s campaign, China is Not the Enemy. Visit their website!

January 22nd we will be celebrating the day that nuclear weapons become illegal after 50 nations ratified the Treaty to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. Our challenge will be to join CODEPINK and others in convincing the U.S. to take steps toward reducing our arsenal and signing the treaty. Let’s turn the Doomsday Clock back from the brink!

WAND thanks you for your support in the past as we worked to empower women to reduce violence and militarism and abolish nuclear weapons. Now, more than ever, our mandate is to cut military spending significantly and fund climate change, education, and health care.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, January 24th.
