What unites the women of WILD?  Our commitment to:

  • fight for economic justice;
  • promote grassroots activism; and
  • challenge racism, sexism, homophobia and all forms of oppression.        

We provide education, training and support to help women become ever more effective organizers and leaders: in their unions and the labor movement as a whole; in the political arena and within their communities.
