On December 14, 2016, along with the Santa Barbara High School Gender and Sexuality Alliance, Associated Student Body and members of Veterans for Peace Santa Barbara, we set up a display of the True Costs of War, tombstones representing the more than 400 18 and 19 year olds killed in action in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Here is a video of a student playing Taps at the event.
Truth in Recruitment encourages students to take ownership of peace issues and the meaning of citizenship– to voice their perspective on recruiters and militarism.
Our community service opportunities for students include: creating and helping set up displays, designing artwork for social media, flyers and informational materials, working and meeting with school clubs, administrators, staff and parent groups. We welcome your involvement in this effort!
