War Is Trauma is a portfolio of handmade prints produced by the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative in collaboration with the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW). This portfolio transpired out of a street poster project, from November 2010, which a number of Justseeds artists provided graphics for “Operation Recovery” – a campaign to stop the deployment of traumatized troops and win service members and veterans right to heal. Posters were pasted in public, replacing many corporate advertisements, to focus public attention towards the issues not being discussed – GI Resistance, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), sexual assault in the military or Military Sexual Trauma (MST), and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
This campaign focuses on creating or changing policies/programs that improve the health and well being of community members. By the end of the summer, students will become experts on a specific issue related to this topic and create a group action plan around a policy/program they wish to change or implement. Campaign issues may include: community violence & healing, sexual/reproductive health issues, mental/physical concerns, and food justice.

Forty students at two public high schools are learning artesian craftwork as an employment opportunity. Students make mosaics, jewelry, or other crafts and earn money for themselves; they also share half the proceeds with a community fund as part of a social enterprise model.
Five college students interning at AFSC mentor the high school students and elementary school students interested in mosaic crafts. The college students are forming themselves into a college work cooperative. Undocumented immigrant youth are a special focus of the program, and AFSC trains college interns to assist others with Deferred Action (DACA) applications.
