For many years now the Syracuse Peace Council has paid monthly visits to area high schools to talk to students about activism, war, and opposing military recruitment. After a successful fall series of counter-recruitment outreach during school lunch periods, we’re regrouping to focus on helping highschoolers become more engaged in their community and the issues that affect their lives. Join us for an organizing meeting on February 11 at 5:00 pm at the Peace Council office.
