NNOMY (National Network Opposing the Militarization of Youth) is a national networking body that brings together national, regional and local organizations to oppose the growing intrusion of the military in young people's lives.
NNOMY will endeavor to:
promote communication and sharing of organizing skills and resources;
stimulate collaboration between network members on projects that would advance our collective goals;
facilitate nationally coordinated actions and campaigns;
strengthen youth-led efforts on campuses and in communities; and
educate the broader activist community and general public on the need to become involved in these efforts.
Learning the Issues about Youth Demilitarization
The NNOMY Reader is a useful primer to learn about the realities of military recruitment, the militarism effecting our youth in schools and our opportunities for peaceful coexistance. This collection of articles represents a historical overview of the U.S. based counter-recruitment movement's strategies to inform and intervene in schools and the community about the Pentagon's multi-billion dollar programs to recruit America's youth into escalating wars. The NNOMY Reader also includes some information on alternatives to enlistment, as well as research presented by activists and investigators on the nature and risks of cultural militarization and how it threatens our democracy.
