A statewide, women-led, grassroots organization, Georgia WAND educates the public and decision makers about the need to reduce militarism and violence, and redirect excessive military spending toward unmet human and environmental needs. We work toward systemic change focusing on the leadership and participation of people who have been historically oppressed by what is becoming a militarized and corporatized democracy.
Georgia WAND co-designs strategies with people in communities who are directly affected by our focus issues; and we follow their leadership. Our constituency spans age, race, geography, and other markers of difference; and we are working to be inclusive of all women of color, transgender women, women throughout the state, working women, and young women. As an organization of action, we raise our voices to speak out against injustice; and we take our passion, knowledge, and experiences to the streets, the classrooms, the boardroom, the capitol steps, the state legislative body, the halls of Congress, and beyond.
