Thinking About Joining the Military?

In 2004, the Westchester Martin Luther King, Jr. Institute for Nonviolence and No War Westchester prepared a packet of materials for parents and students concerned about military recruiting issues in their schools and communities.  You can help by “adopting a school” and distributing these materials to people and organizations in your community.  Download the packet of materials here.
