About us….

WISE was born out of the Women’s March on Washington DC, a sense of anger and a feeling that we could not stand by and watch our country move backwards. We are, as such, a Huddle and maintain strong links to the Women’s March movement. As we formed, we educated ourselves, including through the Indivisible guide and registered early on as an Indivisible Group. As a women’s movement in Anne Arundel County, we are keen to represent and cover the broad range of issues that are important to our members. We have a clear mission statement and 12 issues-based huddles that act on our priorities at the local, state and national level. We are nonpartisan and welcome women of all ideologies who agree with our mission statement and want to be effective agents for change.

WISE Rallying Cries

WISE is focusing on three priorities in 2018:

  1. Ensure that at least one political representative who prioritizes issues important to WISE is elected to office at the following levels: county, state house and state senate;
  2. Together with relevant partners, get targeted pieces of new legislation passed or existing legislation/policies implemented;
  3. Support civil, issues-based conversations around the community and across divides, leading by example with inclusivity, kindness and tolerance.
