Counter-Recruitment Training Seminar Held in Hayward on February 5th
Military Out of Our Schools to Expose Recruitment of Youth in the US
A Counter-Recruitment Training Seminar was held on Saturday, February 5th, at Chabot College in Hayward. The seminar was sponsored by the Military Out of Our Schools project, Code Pink Hayward, and Students for Social Justice at Chabot College.

Part of the "No Child Left Behind" legislation makes it necessary for school administrators to turn over the names of high school students to the US Military. Students are being recruited through Army interactive vans which visit campuses and introduce students to simulated war games. Many recruiting techniques disproportionately target low-income and minority communities. The Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors and its student group Military Out of Our Schools will present alternative possibilities to joining the military in a seminar that is geared towards parents, grandparents, and interested students.
