Truth In Recruitment

Truth In Recruit­ment: This com­mit­tee focuses on address­ing the mis­lead­ing promises of mil­i­tary recruiters, alter­na­tives to the mil­i­tary, the pos­si­bil­ity of a Draft, and how to declare one­self a Con­sci­en­tious Objec­tor to war. They are cur­rently plan­ning an edu­ca­tion drive aimed at the local high schools to counter mil­i­tary recruitment.

Mil­i­tary recruiters will say any­thing and every­thing to get young peo­ple to join the mil­i­tary – except the whole truth! Peace Action and oth­ers are here to pro­tect our youth.

Inter­ested in host­ing a guest speaker on this topic? Peace Action staff and mil­i­tary vet­er­ans are avail­able. Email info@peaceactionwi.org or call 414–964-5158.
