What we're about

Are you an advocate for action on Climate Change? So is WILPF - the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom. Are you concerned about excessive pentagon spending and especially about the nuclear weapons program? The International Monetary Fund, as part of its climate change work, says globally the fossil fuel industry gets a subsidy of $5.2 trillion annually. That is money misspent!

The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom is a group that helps to magnify your voice and enables you to act on your convictions. As a group we support writing letters to Congress and the editor, campaigning for the Green New Deal and working with other peace organizations on Nuclear Abolition.

Ever notice that women get the short end of the stick with regard to economics? Women for Peace (WILPF St. Louis) is offering a series of free workshop demystifying economics that affect your life and suggesting solutions for making lasting change. Find info at www.Screwnomics.org. It comes with a downloadable workbook.

Our fall ‘introduction to feminist economics,’ is a five part workshop, starting September 28, meeting alternate Saturdays at 2:00 at the Ethical Society. Buy the book, Screwnomics read the first 4 chapters. It’s free and conducted in a cozy book club and tea (with baked goods). Wo/men will enjoy this facilitated study for the added insight about economics.

Bring your feisty feminist self to our upcoming Meet Ups! I will be wearing a pink Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) Tee-Shirt. If you have questions, contact me at Lynnsableman@att.net
