Women of Color Advancing Peace and Security
Women of Color Advancing Peace and Security (WCAPS) believes that global issues demand a variety of perspectives. Through mentorships and partnerships, WCAPS advances the leadership and professional development of women of color in the fields of international peace, security, and conflict transformation. While the global community is faced with issues related to worldwide health security, peacekeeping, weapons of mass destruction, nonproliferation, and the intersection of other areas of international security, there is no significant or sustained voice from women of color who are often the most affected. WCAPS aims to remedy this by creating a platform devoted to creating space for women of color to engage in policy discussions on an international scale.
