The Role Of Women In Stopping Nuclear War


With the threat of nuclear warning growing, now more than ever it is critical we bring to the table the voices of those directly impacted by war and organize ourselves to advocate for peaceful solutions.

Join Representative Carol Ammons and a panel of experts discussing topics ranging from historical overview of United States involvement in global conflict, current international relations between the United States and key countries, experiences of military personnel who have served on the ground during wartime, and hear the experiences of those who have been forced to relocate because of war.

The panel is the kickoff event to starting the Illinois Chapter of Women's Action for New Directions (WAND). WAND empowers women to be agents of change to reduce violence and militarism, support nuclear disarmament, and redirect excessive Pentagon spending to unmet human and environmental needs.
