THE STORY:

When I first became involved with WAND the motto was, "Children Ask the World of Us." This resonated with me at the time since it was months after 9/11 and my nine year old son's future seemed very grim. Today, his music floods our lives as we continue the struggle against injustice and militarism to make this a better world for our children and grandchildren. As an artist, mother and bonus-grandmother as well as a life-long peace activist what motivates and is most precious to me is my family, friends and community, my art and the women whom I work alongside, my WAND colleagues. My wish today and everyday is for "a world at peace." My photos and video portray a glimpse of my precious world and the music on my video is performed by our son James. Please support WAND's work by contributing to our fundraiser.  Thank you!

This year WAND women helped change the course of history by playing an integral part in the process leading to the Iran nuclear agreement-- the Iran Deal. Through WAND's WiLL program progressive women in state legislatures are powerful proponents of our mission to reduce violence. 

WAND Is a 35-year-old diverse, national organization of women uniquely positioned to help women activists and women state legislators stay informed and ready to respond to wasteful Pentagon spending, and to ensure that women are accurately represented at the tables of power and peace-building. 

  • WAND supporters promote diplomacy over war to ensure a hopeful future for children everywhere.
  • WAND supporters empower progressive women to run for office to counter the influences of those who strive to diminish women's rights at home and abroad.
