Winning The Peace
A National High School Intervention
For participating organizations:
Winning the Peace is a national leafleting campaign.
NNOMY is working with War Resisters League to distribute palm cards at high schools that will direct youth to online resources that they can access on their mobile devices. This information and additional links will assist them in answering the questions they will have about the realities of military enlistment that they will not hear from military recruiters, and direct them to non-military alternatives to achieve their future educational and career goals.
If we stay on message and return to our adopted schools every school year, we will have an impact by engaging our schools, families and youth in a deeper discussion about what it means to be in the military during this time of unending conflicts.
This moment has never been more important, with increasing Pentagon programs in primary, middle and secondary schools, to ask young people to question the normalization of our wars and the risks and impacts that military enlistment can have on their lives and those around them.
Please talk with your group and decide to join in a national intervention to reach young people before they are directed into future violent conflicts.
