Center on Conscience and War works to defend and extend the rights of conscientious objectors.
International Conscientious Objectors Day is May 15.
Through workshops, actions, and an international conference from May 11-16 Operation Refuse War will highlight the difficulties that current conscientious objectors face as well as help build relationships and connections between the various communities within the anti-war movement. The focus of the events is on supporting contemporary American conscientious objectors and their families, as well as examining the current potential of conscientious objection (in its various forms) as a strategy for building an anti-war movement. In addition, Operation Refuse War will bring together international and American conscientious objectors to share their experiences and ideas.
