Sign Up Now and Participate in Vets for Peace "Climate Crisis & Militarism Project"

 

The national office of Veterans for Peace has a mission: to educate and mobilize about the cost of war and militarism as it relates to the Climate Crisis.

Our areas of focus are:

  • The carbon bootprint of the US military, larger than that of many countries. 
  • The wars for oil and other resources – how they support the fossil fuel-based status quo.
  • The unequal burden of both climate crisis and militarism on people of color, the poor, and future generations.
  • The resources spent on militarism and war – redirect to respond to the existential threat of climate crisis.
