WILPF envisions a transformed world at peace, where there is racial, social, and economic justice for all people everywhere—a world in which:
· The needs of all people are met in a fair and equitable manner
· All people equally participate in making the decisions that affect the
· The interconnected web of life is acknowledged and celebrated in diverse ways and communities
· Human societies are designed and organized for sustainable existence
WILPF members create the peaceful transformation they wish to see in the world by making connections that:
· Provide continuity with the past so that knowledge of historical events and patterns informs current activities for change
· Create analysis and action that reflect and reinforce each other
· Link and challenge root causes of oppression, especially racism, sexism, heterosexism, militarism, economic disparity, and political disempowerment
· Build and strengthen relationships and movements for justice, peace, and radical democracy

WILPF Monthly Meetings: WILPF Triangle meets the second Saturday of every month, from 10am to 12 noon, at Friends Meeting, 531 Raleigh Road, Chapel Hill http://mapq.st/WNRxQE (The Friends Meeting rents out their parking lot on football Saturdays, so watch for alternate locations during the fall.)
WILPF Triangle doesn't meet in February each year since the 2nd Saturday of February is always HKonJ (Historic Thousands on Jones Street); instead we mobilize and invite all our friends and allies to join us in Raleigh.
WILPF also doesn't meet in July; instead we have a table at the annual Carrboro July 4 activities.
WILPF is a partner organization of the NAACP-led HKOnJ/Forward Together Moral Movement in protest. Numerous WILPF members have already exercised our constitutional right to petition the legislature with our grievances and been arrested along with almost 100 friends and allies from across the state - and the number is growing. For more information, go to the Moral March section of www.hkonj.com.
US WILPF is an endorsing partner of the Poor People's Campaign, and Triangle WILPF members are active participants in PPC activities. We support the PPC goals, including "lifting up and deepening the leadership of those most affected by systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, and ecological devastation and to building unity across lines of division." For more information, go to: https://www.poorpeoplescampaign.org.
