Report-back from trip to Fort Lewis Army base helping soldiers refuse deployment to Afghanistan

Featured Speaker: Mike Prysner
Iraq War Veteran & Co-Founder, March Forward!

Our Lives Our Rights is a new campaign led by veterans, active-duty U.S. troops and war resisters. The goal of the campaign is to inform U.S. service members of their rights—first and foremost, their right to refuse to fight the criminal war in Afghanistan be becoming Conscientious Objectors.

Mike Prysner, co-founder of the campaign, will speak in San Francisco after Our Lives Our Rights completes an outreach deployment to Fort Lewis, where they will do outreach to thousands of soldiers scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan in just a few weeks with the message: “We don’t have to go to Afghanistan!”

Wheelchair accessible. Refreshments provided.
$5-10 donation (no one turned away for lack of funds)
