The Teach-In is a community space for us to learn more about how we feel the impact of the War in our lives, our families and our resources.There will be space to share stories of your experiences. Workshops will go more in-depth on how we can support our troops, what youth can do to combat militarization and how people of faith are standing against this war. Finally, we will focus on developing strategies to resist in our communities and how we build power to fight this Endless War. For more info:
