WISE was born out of the Women’s March on Washington DC, from 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 and allies of all ideologies who agree with our mission statement and want to be effective agents for change.
WISE Mission Statement
We provide a platform for women of diverse views to come together and promote values and rights that foster inclusivity, fairness, and safety in our communities. We vow to turn our collective energy into action and advocate indivisibly on a range of issues, particularly at the local level.
