IVAW Field Organizing Team

This image is from Celebrate People’s History/Iraq Veterans Against the War: Ten Years of Fighting for Peace and Justice, a portfolio that celebrated IVAW’s first ten years and was produced by Justseeds, IVAW, Booklyn, Repetitive Press, and the Civilian Soldier Alliance.

(IVAW is now known as About Face: Veterans Against the War)

IVAW developed a field organizing program to encourage leaders, chapters, and regions to engage in leadership development and non-violent direct action campaigns in order to build a GI and veterans movement strong enough to end the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, attain quality veteran’s healthcare, and rebuild Iraq.
