Welcome to WILPF Canada!
WILPF Canada’s goals are to bring together women of different political beliefs and philosophies who are united in their determination to study, make known and help abolish the causes and the legitimization of war; and to work toward world peace; total and universal disarmament; the abolition of violence and coercion in the settlement of conflict and their substitution in every case of negotiation and conciliation; the strengthening of the United Nations system; the continuous development and implementation of international law; political and social equality and economic equity; co-operation among all people; and an environmentally sustainable development.
About us: We are a small (about a dozen or more), diverse group of activists, ranging in age from 20-something to 81. We were born in Canada, the Caribbean, the US., the South Pacific, India, and Europe. We have worked or are working as teachers, librarians, public administrators, doctors, and politicians. As individuals, outside of WILPF, our interests include influencing prostitution policy, bringing refugees to Canada, educating girls in Africa, and strengthening women’s voices in local politics. Our meetings are devoted to finding ways to influence government policy on militarism, indigenous affairs and other public issues. If you would like to sit in on one of our monthly meetings, please contact Tejal Barde at firstname.lastname@example.org.
