Summary describing your organization::

CHOICES is a project of the American Friends Service Committee Hawai'i Area Program.  We work to promote awareness about the realities of and alternatives to military service. We work to develop youth leaders who can organize to confront military recruitment. We also assist the organizing of parents and other concerned community members to change Hawai'i school policies to limit military recruiting in schools and protect student rights to privacy from predatory recruiters.  We work in coalition with groups that address the impacts and consequences of the military presence in Hawai'i.
