Howdy from a WILPFer
Regardless of your age or gender, WILPF is the perfect organization to make your primary home as an activist. Unlike many American organizations, we do not operate primarily through professional activists. Our amazing six person staff in Philadelphia do fabulous work for WILPF and the peace movement, but we also offer tons of leadership opportunities for members. We have active branches all around the country and our at large members gather electronically via a listserv. There's a lot more that should be said about the benefits of membership, but for now I'll direct you to US WILPF's website for more information.
