Help in lobbying the Portland school board

The Portland Public Schools board of directors is responsible for setting policy in the Portland school district related to military recruiters' access to students in Portland schools.  As such, many of our efforts are directed at influencing their policy decisions to limit recruiter access to students and to ensure that portayals of military life given to students are accurate and appropriate.   Please contact us if you are interested in helping with these lobbying efforts.

  • You can join our campaign to end the Portland Public Schools participaton in the STARBASE program in elementary schools.  This is a program where elementary school children go to a military base each year, ostensibly to learn about math and science.  We believe this is a thinly veiled recruiting tactic and that it is an inappropriate use of our children's time.  You can get involved in our efforts to eliminate this program from Portland Public Schools.
