 Militarization of our Schools

The Pentagon is taking over our poorer public schools. This is the reality for disadvantaged youth.


What we can do

Corporate/conservative alliances threaten Democracy . Progressives have an important role to play.

 Why does NNOMY matter?

Most are blind or indifferent to the problem.
A few strive to protect our democracy.

Your donation to NNOMY supports the National Network Opposing the Militarization of Youth's efforts to balance the message of military recruiters in our public schools where minors are routinely taught militaristic values and primed for recruitment through Department of Defense school programs designed for youth. Making a financial contribution supports NNOMY's national demilitarization work with activist organizations inside middle and high schools.

Overhead is small and staffing is accomplished by dedicated volunteers. 100% of your donation goes to education outreach and supporting activists with support materials to engage in youth demilitarization work. Your donation funds national campaigns to raise awareness about the increasing militarization of our public schools, organizing activists materials for in-school presentations to educate students on the FULL PICTURE of military service, and our websites and social media channels, which receive 200 to 300 visits a day. NNOMY is the only network that performs a national networking role for counter-recruitment and youth demilitarization work.
