Do You want to be part of the New Issue
Committee to Challenge Corporate Power, Assert the People's
After 6 years as a WILPF Campaign, the Challenge
Corporate Power, Assert the People's Rights project is transforming
into an Issue Committee.
We look back in pride on the dozens of study groups,
presentations all over the country, thousands of flyers distributed,
resolutions and ordinances passed, consciousness raised, new
people involved in WILPF and in challenging corporate rule.
This campaign has helped begin a very important new discussion
about democracy and people's rights.
Now we are rethinking, re-planning, regrouping,
and with new members, reinvigorating! If the Study Sessions
inspired you, if you want to work on Abolishing Corporate Personhood
or other issues of Corporate Power, and if you have the energy
to take a role in this new phase of WILPF's Corporate Analysis
and Actions, now is the time to join the Issue Committee. We
are in the early planning and you are needed to help shape our
direction. Your excitement, fresh ideas and new leadership can
make this an ever more flexible and useful tool for WILPF branches
In the past, many of you have been supportive
from afar, and we thank you for that. But now we need some of
you to step up into leadership roles. The new committee will
need many types of involvement; someone to work with the website,
members to write articles, give presentations and develop new
materials for branches. Issue Committee Members will participate
conference calls, do outreach to WILPF branches and other like
minded organizations, and many other things not yet thought
of. We need to research, ponder and discuss.
The Issue Committee has not yet chosen a name
or picked specific issues. Everything is on the table and we
are open to all suggestions. The CCP,APR Campaign leadership
team is very proud of what has been accomplished by WILPF on
this issue. We want to assure it will continue! So as we step
away from our leadership roles, we are hoping to pass the baton
to new WILPFers who will build on this solid foundation. This
is your opportunity to make waves on an issue that is rapidly
gaining momentum in the public dialogue.
Join now and plan with us.
The new committee will start in Fall 2005.
