VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Talk to kids about the realities of the military

As you may know, the Portland school board passed a resolution earlier in the year to grant "equal access" to counter military recruiters in public schools.  This policy is due to take effect at the end of January 2012 and as such we are working on our strategy to put counter recruiters into schools.  We need people who are available during the day time hours who would be interested in talking to kids in schools about alternatives to military enlistment.  While everyone is welcome, we are particularly interested in hearing from veterans as their perspective is very powerful in countering the message of military recruiters.  If you would like to get involved, please contact us.
