THE WORLD FEDERALIST MOVEMENT – INSTITUTE FOR GLOBAL POLICY

 

   Our local organization, Citizens for Global Solutions of Greater St. Louis (which includes all of the state of Missouri and southern Illinois from Springfield south) is a chapter of the national organization, Citizens for Global Solutions, whose website is <http://www.globalsolutions.org>.  Individuals join the national organization ($25 a year), and those who live in the appropriate ZIP-code areas automatically are also members of our chapter.

   But there is also an international organization for world federalists, the World Federalist Movement-Institute for Global Policy (WFM-IGP)  whose website is <http://www.wfm-igp.org> and whose headquarters is near the UN in New York City.  A second office is near the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands.  WFM-IGP is a coalition of national world federalist organizations, including Citizens for Global Solutions in this country.  That means that each of our CGS members is indirectly also supportive of WFM-IGP.

   At the same time, individuals are free to directly support WFM-IGP if they would like to do that.  Financial contributions can be sent to WFM-IGP, 708 Third Avenue, 24th Floor, New York NY 10017.  Contributors will receive the newsletter WORLD FEDERALIST NEWS once or twice a year.

   WFM-IGP is also the coordinator of various international projects such as the Coalition for the International Criminal Court (CICC) <http://www.iccnow.org> and the Responsibility to Protect: Engaging Civil Society (R2P-CS) whose website is <http://www.responsibilitytoprotect.org>.  Consequently, financial contributions to those particular projects can also be sent to the WFM-IGP office in New York.  All such contributions are tax-deductible because WFM-IGP is not politically active in the United States.  (Citizens for Global Solutions is politically active in the U.S., but tax-deductible contributions can be made to the non-political CGS Education Fund, 418 Seventh St. SE, Washington DC 20003.)
