 Militarization of our Schools

The Pentagon is taking over our poorer public schools. This is the reality for disadvantaged youth.


What we can do

Corporate/conservative alliances threaten Democracy . Progressives have an important role to play.

 Why does NNOMY matter?

Most are blind or indifferent to the problem.
A few strive to protect our democracy.

 Additional Info:

Hawaii is sodden with military relationships. Truth 2 Youth, started 
in 2005, advocates full disclosure about military enlistment to the 
youth of this island, the Big Island. There are 10 public high 
schools and we have been able to bring a young veteran to each one to 
talk with students. We participate in at least 2 high school and 1 
community college career fairs every year. We have active 
relationships with teachers and parents, advocating alternatives to 
the military. We have also staged three peace-themed events in three 
poorly performing high schools which included wide distribution of 
counter-recruitment materials to the student body. Currently we are 
collaborating with Careers in Peace, a counter-recruitment project of 
Maui Peace Action. Our goals are to make the community at large aware 
of the encroaching militarization of public schools and repeatedly 
reach as many youth as we can throughout the state with relevant 
speakers and up-to-date materials.
