Registration with the Selective Service System, intended to collect information about draft-eligible U.S. residents, is a burden that has been unjustly placed on men for too long. Now members of Congress are attempting to expand the unnecessary, burdensome, and punitive system to women.
Forcing Americans into warfighting doesn't represent equality for women. It represents a step back toward militarism that hurts us all and should be ended once and for all.
Join the American Friends Service Committee, Center on Conscience and War, and Women's Action for New Directions (WAND) for a discussion about the Selective Service System, its individual and societal impacts, and how you can help end, rather than expand, the registration system.
