Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors

Since 1948, we have helped people stay out or get out of the military. Our programs include keeping the military out of our schools, the GI rights hotline, and thirdworld and youth outreach activities.

 

Committee Opposed to Militarism and the Draft

We challenge the institution of the military, its effect on society, its budget, its role abroad and at home, and the racism, sexism and homophobia that are inherent in the armed forces and selective service system. Our activities include community education, direct action and youth outreach.

 

Courage to Resist

A group of concerned community members, veterans, and military families that supports military objectors to illegal war and occupation and the policies of empire. Our people power strategy weakens one of the pillars that maintain war and occupation in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere by supporting GI resistance, counter-recruitment and draft resistance, which cuts off the supply of troops.

 

National Network Opposing Militarization of Youth

A coalition bringing groups together to help the nation understand that providing youth with peaceful and viable alternatives to achieve success in life is an important sign of a civilized society.

National Campaign for a Peace Tax Fund

We advocate for U.S. federal legislation enabling conscientious objectors to war to have their federal income taxes directed to a special fund which could be used for non-military purposes only. We want to grant conscientious objectors the right to refrain from paying for war, just as they already have the right to refrain from fighting in war. This is part of our long and distinguished history of religious freedom.

 

National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee

Formed in 1982 to provide information and support to people involved in or considering some form of war tax resistance. We join together in a common struggle for a more just and peaceful society. We oppose militarism and war and refuse to participate in the tax system which supports such violence.

AntiWar.com

We are devoted to the cause of non-interventionism and are read by libertarians, pacifists, leftists, greens, and independents, as well as many on the right who also are opposed to imperialism.

 

Antiwar League

We welcome principled war opponents from all points of view, not just from the left or progressive viewpoint. We do not introduce extraneous issues that might prevent people from getting involved. We are antiwar all the time. In addition we oppose not just the Iraq War but the whole "War on Terror" and the entire war system that has brought forth this madness. We work so it will never happen again.

 

School of the Americas Watch

A nonviolent grassroots movement that stands in solidarity with the people of Latin America, to close the SOA/WHINSEC and to change the oppressive U.S. foreign policy that the SOA represents. We work through vigils, fasts, demonstrations, nonviolent protest, and media and legislative advocacy.

 

Smedley Butler Society

As Smedley Butler insisted, if we really want to make war impossible we need to add a Freedom From War Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. There'll be no more yellow ribbons and no longer will we be placed in our present nonsensical moral dilemma: I don't support the war but I support the troops.

 

War Resisters League

Founded in 1923, we reject the use of violence for national defense or for revolutionary change. We believe war is a crime against humanity. We use peaceful means to create a society that is democratic, free of economic, racial, and sexual oppression. Our methods range from education to demonstrations to lobbying to nonviolent direct action. We focus on the evil of institutions, not seeing individuals as evil.
