Women Against War

Women Against War is a group of women based out of the Capital District, who advocate for peace and change in United States foreign policies through lobbying, leafleting, vigils, media outreach, and educational events. Founded in 2002, a group of women stood up against the United States government’s plan to go to war against Iraq. Hundreds of women around the area reached out and commited to raising their voices against the impending violence. Women Against War co-sponsored events with the Sanctuary, one being a talk with journalist Jeremy Scahill called “Dirty Wars.”
