Demilitarize Our Community

The climate of militarism in our Western Massachusetts community is increasingly concerning. We know military recruiters are active in our children’s schools. Companies in our hometowns are contracted with the Department of Defense. Not to mention, gun violence in schools is worse than ever with the deadly military weapons being more and more accessible.

The Resistance Center for Peace and Justice continues to gain momentum on issues of militarism and gun violence. We need your help to keep our momentum going. Our Demilitarization Committee is holding an open meeting on 9/27 at 6:30pm to plan next steps together. We will meet at our office, 2 Conz Street, Suite 2B, Northampton.

This year, we will improve our Military Recruitment Report, continue research on local contracts with the Department of Defense, and support our students advocating for gun control.
