VFP convention August 2017

Veterans for Peace International Convention
August 9 - 13
Palmer House Hilton, Chicago

Northwest Suburban Peace & Education Project participated in the annual VFP convention held this year in Chicago from August 9 – 13.  The theme of the convention was “Education Not Militarization” so we felt we needed to be there. Also, as a member of NNOMY (National Network Opposed to Militarization of Youth) we hoped to inspire VFP members and chapters to accelerate their counter recruitment efforts.

We had a table. Also, as a member of NNOMY we led a workshop titled “Education Not Militarization: Educating students and countering military recruitment inside the schools.” In this workshop we focused on the nuts and bolts of counter recruiting in the high schools – how to get inside the schools and, once there, suggestions on activities. Check out the pictures and the powerpoint from our workshop.
