WNPJ Membership Benefits!

By becoming a member of WNPJ, you will join hundreds of organizations and individuals around our state who work together to advance our common goals of peace, justice, and sustainability. WNPJ has a wide range of services to offer to its individual member and member groups. Here you’ll find a quick review of our member services. We hope it gives you lots of ideas for how to strengthen your statewide organizing efforts! At WNPJ, we believe that we are all stronger when we work together.

These are some of the things WNPJ has been able to provide to member organizations. Depending on our capacity we can continue do some or all of these things and maybe more.

Let’s get together…


WNPJ holds two statewide events each year, a Spring Steering Committee meeting for member group representatives and a Fall Assembly for all members, to explore peace and justice issues and to share the “common ground” upon which to coordinate our activist efforts. And, as a participant in our Fall and Spring meetings you can help WNPJ set goals and priorities for our future work.

Weaving the Web - WNPJ’s monthly virtual drop in hour: 
All are welcome to drop in the first Thursday of each month. No agenda, just people who care about peace and justice showing up to connect. Zoom information is available on the WNPJ website.

WNPJ Online Member Circle: password-protected online community to share information about organizing efforts, turn to each other for tips and resources, and overall stay connected with one another. 

Want to build a movement?

WNPJ work groups bring together member groups on selected issues to coordinate and strengthen their actions. Work groups also do outreach and education through events, pamphlets, petitions, and media work. Decisions to establish work groups are made by the WNPJ Board.
