default "Worth Fighting For" by Rory Fanning

By In Video Reports 2 downloads

Pat Tillman's death by friendly fire was covered up just days before his comrade Rory Fanning—who served in the same unit as Tillman—left the Army Rangers as a conscientious objector. Disquieted by his tours in Afghanistan, Fanning sets out to honor Tillman's legacy by crossing the United States on foot.

Told with page-turning style, humor, and warmth, Worth Fighting For explores the emotional and social consequences of rejecting the mission of one of the most elite fighting forces in the world. It is only through the generous, and colorful people Fanning meets and the history he discovers that he learns to live again.

2016 Back-to-school Kit for Counter-recruitment and School Demilitarization Organizing

WHAT IS IN THIS KIT?
The kit is a catalog of basic material useful to educating young people and school personnel about the realities
of military enistment and war. The catalog also includes some information on alternatives to enlistment, as well
as items written for organizers seeking to reach out to local schools.

All of the material in this catalog was carefully reviewed for relevancy and accuracy as of the Fall of 2015.
A task force of knowledgeable organizers did the research. It does not include all of the available literature on
this topic because much of what exists is out of date or is no longer bing produced by the original sources.

Consequently, we focused on identifying items that we felt were basic and most useful for effective organizing
and educating. New items may be added to future kits as they become available.

HOW TO USE THE KIT

It’s very simple: Read the descriptions in the catalog and then go to the links that are listed to view or download
documents that are relevant o your local organizing. In some cases, you will be able to reprint them for local
reproduction; or, you will be able to order copies in bulk if they are offered by the original source.
NOTE: If you wish to print the catalog, be sure to choose the landscape setting in your print menu (i.e., horizontal).

HOW THE KIT IS ORGANIZED

The catalog groups items into various subject categories:

  • Counter-recruitment
  • Non?military Career, College and Service Alternatives
  • Gender and the Military
  • JROTC
  • Delayed Entry Program (DEP)
  • Privacy  (Opt Out Forms/ ASVAB etc.)
  • Resources for Organizers
  • Contact Information

default A guide to working with School Boards Popular

By In School Board Policies 5486 downloads

The people who constitute your school board are volunteers, unpaid and with varying degrees of ability and education. In some districts they are often there out of sheer frustration with the previous board. At some point members concluded the only way needed changes would be implemented was by running for office and being elected. In major metropolitan areas, political power is a strong consideration. In a few districts, widespread corruption as well as fraudulent use and theft of taxpayers money has been documented.

A Soldiers Life

This website and video are made for high school students to discourage them from enlisting in the military. All of the production staff who created the 10-minute video are students, ranging from middle school to college. The Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice and Veterans for Peace co-created the video with professional photographer and CCPJ Board member Richard Lord. Please feel free to share this with young people and their families.  It is hard to know what the coming years will hold in terms of war and peace; if we can save even one young person from being traumatized emotionally, physically, sexually or socially, then we are doing our job correctly.
