We are members of the largest and oldest women's peace organization in the world. The Women's International League for Peace and Freedom has sections in 37 countries, coordinated by an international office in Geneva. WILPF members support the work of the United Nations with consultative status and serve on several NGO (nongovermental organization) UN committees.

WILPF works for world disarmament, full rights for women, racial/economic justice, an end to all forms of violence at all levels of society, and changing government priorities to meet human needs.

There are 60 branches in the United States, which work on national campaigns selected by vote of the entire membership. The national office in Boston coordinates programs on disarmament, challenging corporate power, civil liberties, LGBT rights, and women's rights.
