HUMANIZE NOT MILITARIZE ACTIVITIES GUIDE:  Download the activities guide to use with youth ages 13-23 in conjunction with the Humanize Not Militarize poster exhibit and youth film festival.

Overall objectives

• Build community.

• Build a common analysis of the root causes and effects of militarism in our communities.

• Develop skills in creating emerging narratives using theater and art.

• Show that there are many ways to achieve social change.
