This spelling of women is more inclusive and grounded in a justice and human rights framework. It welcomes dialogue and makes it clear that while we have the utmost respect for our legacy of being woman centered, we must meet the needs of anyone pushed to the margins and limited by systems of oppression.

2020 marks the 25th anniversary of WVE. Launched in 1995 to take on local issues — pesticide spraying, pollution from a nearby container mill, and stopping a proposed gold mine on Montana’s Blackfoot River — today, we lead tens of thousands of advocates in the U.S. and beyond in campaigns to stop toxic chemicals from being distributed to millions through products made for our homes and bodies. We’ve come a long way, and we thank you for your support and advocacy.
