South Australia

The Branch meets regularly at the UNAA Office at 81 Carrington Street, Adelaide.  Some members attend meetings while others offer support financially and promote WILPF through their networks by spreading news about WILPF's international, national and local campaigns.

We organise a diverse range of activities to promote peace such as photographic and historical exhibitions, book launches, guest speakers on current topics and participate in many international peace campaigns.

In July 2015, the Branch made a submission to the South Australian Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission.

On 21 September 2014, we hosted a UN International Day of Peace with 19 local organisations updating everyone on their current campaigns.  In April 2014, we rallied in support of the Global Day Against Military Spending (GDAMS).

Some branch members also regularly broadcast on the University of Adelaide's Radio Adelaide network (101.5fm) on a weekly peace program A Peace of the Action which WILPF helped establish seven years ago.

WILPF works closely with the United Nations Association of SA, the UN Status of Women Committee, the Support Association for the Women of Afghanistan and many other local peace groups.

We welcome new members who may like to take a lead in a specific project or campaign, attend to learn more about peace activism and current issues, or just be a WILPF supporter in general.
