Atlanta Peace Program at Fort Benning

Ocupy Fort Benning

AFSC's Atlanta Peace Program at School of the Americas Watch.

AFSC's Atlanta Peace and Conflict Transformation Project works with local activists, students, schools, veteran groups, and the faith community. The thrust of the program is to provide young people with the truth about military recruitment and to show them options after high school. We also aim to change the US culture of militarism. We have worked with the ACLU of Georgia and several Georgia legislators to draft legislation that provides safeguards against abusive, dishonest, and illegal military recruitment practices. Through the Student Career Alternatives Program (SCAP), we provide free career counseling at several Atlanta area high schools each month. 

AFSC's peace building work in Atlanta is updated on its blog.  It contains stories, photos, and videos about a variety of projects. Guest writers doing related work in the area sometimes appear on the blog to give our readers a wide perspective on the exciting peace and justice work.
