The Inanna Project Values Diversity and Experience
Who Are We
Here at The Inanna Project, we’re committed to maintaining an environment that values the input of all women so that we are able to serve all communities. This focus includes a commitment to Intersectionality and a board that is independent and diverse in membership.
Our Director, Amee Vanderpool, is licensed to practice law in the District of Columbia and has experience in drafting legislation at the municipal, state and federal level. She has served as Oklahoma State President for the National Organization for Women, worked on state political campaigns and founded the Democratic Women of Pinal County in Arizona.
What The Inanna Project Is Named For
Inanna was the Sumerian goddess of love, beauty, sex, desire, fertility, war, combat, and political power. She was associated with the planet Venus and her most prominent symbols included the lion and the eight-pointed star. In her her most famous myth, she descends into the ancient Sumerian underworld to battle and is eventually permitted to return to heaven for half the year resulting in the cycle of the seasons. Inanna is the mythical representation of the idiom "To Hell and Back" and inspires our work.
Advocacy for Campus Rape Victims
Located in the heart of Washington, D.C., The Inanna Project is perfectly situated to access over six major University campuses, which will lend to developing our Campus Rape Advocacy Program. We will work together with law enforcement to ensure early reporting, proper documentation and assistance in legal proceedings to ensure that victims receive proper treatment and justice.

Here at The Inanna Project, we are driven by a single goal; to facilitate Equal Rights for all women through Equal Protection under the law and Equal Pay. Our work includes advocacy, lobbying and political support of issues that further our mission.
The Inanna Project is a Non-Profit Organization based in the Washington, DC area that advocates for Equal Protection under the law for all women. We will undertake political causes, lobbying efforts and legal advocacy within the Justice System to ensure that women are afforded the legal protections they are entitled to. Our specific work will center around creating a victim advocacy program for sexual assault victims, that will provide assistance to women and government officials in order to ensure prosecution of and protection from their assailants. Until women are truly afforded Equal Protection under the law, they cannot be equal and fully empowered.
