Withdrawing U.S. Troops

AFSC has opposed every war since its inception in 1917, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are no exception.  AFSC has been a steadfast voice for an end to the reliance on military solutions, withdrawal of US military forces and support for civilian-led reconciliation and reconstruction to resolve the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Our advocacy and education work stretches across the country utilizing a network of staff and volunteers to bring the message of the human and economic costs of the war to the general public and to our elected officials.  We focus on alternatives and explore the root causes of violence.

There are many ways to participate in our work on Iraq and Afghanistan, such as volunteering to host the Windows and Mirrors exhibit, participating in an open conference call briefing with an expert, sharing one of our videos on YouTube, or signing up to receive our email action alerts.
