US WILPF Triennial Congress in August!

Have you registered yet for WILPF's Triennial Congress? Don't delay! At this point, housing is filling up - so be sure to email in your registration form and then put your check in the mail.

The deal: US WILPF gathers every three years to celebrate our work for peace and justice. In recent years, it has been a way to galvanize support for our national campaigns. This year, we're meeting at San Francisco State University from August 10-14 to celebrate WILPF's 90th birthday and kick off our two new national campaigns: Women Challenging U.S. Policy: Building Peace on Justice in the Middle East and Save the Water! The cost of attending Congress, including all workshops, meals, and housing is $350 for WILPF members. You can choose to attend for a shorter period of time and/or without housing, which will lower the total cost.

We've also put together a great Leadership Institute for young women and people new to WILPF. The Leadership Institute will be a way to get to know WILPF's organizing method and to take on a more active role in WILPF. We've got room for a few more participants, so the application deadline for the LI has been extended until July 20. You've got a week to join me and some other WILPFers the day before Congress begins (on Aug 9) for a full course in WILPF history and peace activism! The cost of the LI and Congress including all workshops, meals, and housing is $430 for WILPF members.
