How to Renew your DWN Membership

DWN has shifted our membership cycle (previously June 1 - May 31) to match our January 1 - December 31 Fiscal Year as well as updated our member dues. The following membership term changes are for all individual and organizational DWN members:

  • If your membership was originally set to expire May 31, 2020: It is time to renew your membership! See below for ways to renew your membership.
  • If your membership was originally set to expire in May of 2021: Your membership has been extended, free of charge until December 31, 2021, so you do not need to renew at this time.

Updated dues levels went into effect as of October 1, 2020. You can visit our Membership FAQs for more information.

As a national network, we aim to strengthen and build our base and that means making membership accessible to those who share our vision for change. We strongly encourage members to contact us if they are unable to meet the membership dues obligations at
