WILPF US 33rd Triennial Congress 2017
Thursday, July 27 - Sunday, July 30
Our 2017 Congress is set for Chicago! The conference center and dorm rooms are located on the University of IL-Chicago campus, near the restaurant scenes of Little Italy and Greek Town, as well as within "marching" distance of Jane Addams's Hull House, our founder's premier example of a working social democracy.
Right now, our National Congress Committee is working on the theme and starting to build the framework for the Congress. In the next few months, we will reach out to branches for program topics and workshop ideas.
Until then, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Congress Coordinator, Chris Wilbeck at 515-229-6988 or firstname.lastname@example.org
March 22 is United Nations World Water Day. The theme--"Why Waste Water?"--is about reducing and reusing wastewater. Time for some local education and action, to say "No" to bottled water and "No" to glyphosate-based herbicides.
