Fight Against War and Racism
Volunteer with the ANSWER Coalition
Since September 2001, the United States government has carried out a program of war at home and abroad. Millions of Iraqis, Afghanis, and others have been killed due to the U.S. invasions and occupations. Thousands of U.S. soldiers have been killed. There are more than 250,000 young people serving in the U.S. military abroad.
Here, 47 million people do not have healthcare. Unemployment is the highest it has been in years, and affects tens of millions of people. Many of these are young people. Our schools lack resources and college tuition increases every year, as the attack on public education increases.
History has proven that youth and students are a powerful force when we are educated and organized. We have been part of the struggle against war and racism. We have won struggles for education, for jobs, for women's rights and for civil rights. We need to build a movement to demand money for jobs and education, not for war and occupation.
The ANSWER Coalition has many volunteer opportunities for young people and students who are interested in becoming part of that movement.
ANSWER uses a variety of tactics and strategies to build, sustain and expand the new anti-war, anti-racist, pro-justice movement that has emerged in the U.S. In addition to helping build protest marches, volunteers have the opportunity to gain experience through organizing various ANSWER projects, including:
- Monthly ANSWER Film Series at Artist Television Access (ATA)
- ANSWER Educational Public Forums
- Coalition Organizing
- Internet Organizing
- Labor, Community, and Youth Organizing
- Regional Organizing/Speaking Tours
- Media Advocacy, Video Production and Documentary Digital Photography
- Office Management
There are no age, experience, or skill qualifications. All that is needed to volunteer with the ANSWER Coalition is a desire to build a united people's movement against war and racism.
