Encountering Military Recruitment: Getting Involved & Getting Connected

Dear friends,

On Earth Peace sponsors a regular networking call for all who are currently involved (or who wish to get involved) in creatively countering the prevalent presence of military recruiters, and offering meaningful alternatives for youth. 

Does this describe you? If so, can you join us for a networking call on June 20 or 22? 

(Please visit our website at for more info on truth-in-recruiting and counter-recruiting!)

The call is a time to meet others from around the counter-recruitment movement, and to share the lessons you've learned during this school year's organizing.    What has worked well?  (What are your "best practices"?)  What will you do differently next year?  What would you like to still learn how to do better? 

As usual, the call will be a great place for folks with different levels of experience:
        ==to reflect,
        ==to share questions and learnings, and
        ==to return to your organizing feeling more connected to the broader movement and to your own motivations for the work.

We are considering two calls during the week of June 19--


I'll need at least three participants in either slot to keep that slot open.  I will let you know on this list on Friday, June 15 how many have registered for each slot.

Will you join us, and add your experience to the conversation?
