Military Recruitment

Bay Area Youth and Militarism Program

OUSD resolution victory

BAY-Peace activists at Oakland school board

BAY-Peace activists celebrate victory at Oakland Unified School District, after a school board vote May 12 made OUSD the first district in the country to have a policy offering students the chance to OPT OUT of the private recruitment database known as JAMRS.

The PMRO Peace Building program, an active participant in AFSC’s National Youth and Militarism Task Force, works locally with a broad network to bring “truth in recruitment” work to local schools and communities and to counter disproportionate military recruitment in low-income communities of color.  

Oakland Students' Victory!
