The WAND Education Fund creates educational materials for training and briefing individuals, elected leaders and the media. Founded in 1982, we have been dedicating our energies to redirect federal budget priorities away from the military and toward human needs. Our goals are to: challenge and promote alternatives to militarism and violence as the solution to conflict; shift from a military to a civilian-based economy to address the threats to our real security; clean up environmental effects of nuclear weapons production as well as toxic waste at all military facilities; eliminate the testing, production, sale and use of weapons of mass destruction; prevent violence against women; and increase women's political leadership to further WAND's goals.

Women for Women International (WWI) provides women survivors of war, civil strife and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency, thereby promoting viable civil societies.

The next leg of the journey is the Renewing Women's Life Skills (ReneWLS) Program that provides them with rights awareness, leadership education and vocational and technical skills training.

The Women's Media Center is a progressive, nonpartisan nonprofit organization working to raise the visibility, viability and decision-making power of women and girls in media and, thereby, ensuring that their stories get told and their voices are heard.
