Highlights:

“WILPF – CA VOTE”: a new statewide WILPF committee to promote legislation and ballot measures, within the constraints of our 501(c)4 status. Acting together will maximize our effectiveness and enhance our image, helping to attract members, and providing a means for at-large members to become involved.

National News:

WILPF National Director of Operations Ria Kulenovic will be joining us, as will National Board Members Darien De Lu, Joan Bazar and Ellen Schwartz, and JAPA Co-President Sandy Silver. We will hear the latest from national WILPF and you will have a chance to discuss your concerns.
