MISSION

ACWPS protects women and girls in war and crisis, and works to deter conflict and secure just and lasting peace. ACWPS teaches, researches, and advocates for the dignity, liberty, and equality of opportunity for all women and girls through implementation of the U.S. Women Peace and Security Act of 2017 and the UN Security Council’s WPS agenda

SUPPORT AFGHAN WOMEN

Please support Afghan women who bravely face down opposition to give dignity and opportunity to their families and communities. 

ACWPS is securing protection and safety of Afghan women through evacuation, providing aid to women in the U.S. awaiting resettlement such as prenatal/neonatal nutrition and clothing, and amplifying the voices of Afghan women through the media. We are honored to have amplified their voices during our webinar series.

PLEASE VIEW ACWPS THREE-PART SERIES CO-SPONSORED with Atlantic council and u.s. afghan-women’s council: HOW U.S. INVESTMENT IN WOMEN CAN PROMOTE INTERNATIONAL PEACE AND SECURITY, HUMAN DIGNITY, AND OPPORTUNITY FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.
