Counter Recruitment Organizing Packet
On Earth Peace's Organizing and Outreach packet is intended as an introduction to the work of counter-recruitment and truth-in-recruiting, especially developed for those working from a Christian faith basis. It includes:
- A sampling of 15-20 of the best resources (leaflets, ideas, handouts, comics, etc.) currently offered by our partner organizations in the counter-recruitment movement.
- Faith resources including a DVD on faith and military recruitment, a letter inviting on congregational leaders to get involved, activities for a youth group to use to begin thinking about issues of military recruitment and faith commitment, and a brief theological reflection on the work of counter-recruitment.
If you are just getting oriented or even if you've been organizing for a while, this sampler is a great source of ideas and inspiration.
Order the packet, for which we ask a donation of $10 plus $3 shipping; or order the faith and militarism DVD alone for a $3.00 donation. To order, contact Matt Guynn by e-mail or by calling 765-962-6234.
