Friends of Courage to Resist
Iraq War veteran
When men and women of courage and conscience choose to take the bold step of resisting illegal wars, Courage to Resist is one of the foremost resources for them and their families.
Courage to Resist provides legal, media and moral support for soldiers of conscience, but most importantly, it is a beacon of hope to those who feel most compelled to act for peace.
Many service members are reluctant to speak out against the war because they feel isolated and afraid. Organizations like Courage to Resist often presents these men and women with their first exposure to the vast undercurrent of support they need to stand on their principles.
It will be the soldiers who refuse to fight who will end this unconscionable war. Their actions are often made possible with the initiative and hard work of the great people who give us all the courage to resist.
