It’s Throwback Thursday! This week we are revisiting the brochure for AFSC’s Nationwide Women’s Program (NWP). The NWP was created in 1975 to address issues of gender inequality outside and within the AFSC. According to the brochure: “AFSC has come to recognize that SEXISM, like racism and war, does violence to human society and is a pervasive form of oppression. … Feminism rejects arbitrary limitations historically placed on women and our aspirations, while emphasizing the infinite worth of the individual and the right of people collectively to control their own lives.”

What would you do with a trillion dollars? Youth across the country tell us as part of the “If I Had a Trillion Dollars” film festival. As revenue and spending decisions made at the federal level disproportionately affect young people, the festival is geared toward educating and inspiring young people to engage in civic activism.
