Beyond War and Militarism

Beyond War and Militarism (BWaM) is a joint committee of the SPC and the CNY Solidarity Coalition. Our goal is to increase awareness of the dangers resulting from government and corporate militaristic policies and practices. 

Invest in Communities, Not War

Dedicated to nonviolence in work with Syracuse Veterans for Peace, World Beyond War, and Upstate Drone Action, the BWaM team seeks to raise awareness of the corrupting, dangerous, and immoral behavior by, and for, the corporate-dominated state that promotes war and militarism, while stealing resources from urgent needs in the United States and worldwide. Actions include organizing our Armistice Day commemoration, sponsoring or co-sponsoring speakers, rallies, exhibitions, etc., engaging electoral candidates and representatives, participating in frequent “Street Heat” protests and advocacy.


Watch an Educational Forum

On May 3, 2022, SPC & Syracuse DSA hosted a forum titled “Pathways to Peace in Ukraine and an End to War,” featuring Aly Wane, Don Hughes, Khoury Petersen-Smith and Brian Escobar.
