collage of women's facesWe are the Arkansas chapter of WAND Inc. Arkansas WAND (Women’s Action for New Directions) was founded in 1997 and has over 350 members, primarily in Central Arkansas, and over 500 on our email list.  We have special events during the year, including the Mother’s Day Luncheon for Peace, and the Fourth of July on the USS Razorback.

We are a member of the Arkansas Coalition for Peace and Justice and have worked closely with the Coalition in staging peace rallies and educational events. We work with numerous other groups on special projects.

Members are available to present programs on the military budget and nuclear disarmament. We have a library of videos and books on alternatives to war, nuclear weapons, weapons in space and conflict resolution to loan and educational materials for distribution.
