Your support of the CWA contributes to the realization of this unique Boulder tradition each year, and improves our ability to enhance the experience of our audience and that of our invited speakers and artists. During these uncertain times, support for programs like the CWA is appreciated more than ever.

We are grateful to our dedicated community of volunteers and supporters who ensure that the special experience of CWA continues for future generations to come.

Thank you for your commitment to the Conference on World Affairs!
