All of Us or None: Responses and Resistance to Militarism
From Ferguson to Gaza, we can see how militarism directly impacts all of our lives.
Militarism refers to physically violent and coercive ways of settling conflict or maintaining control what we see in the everyday actions of armed security forces such as the military, militia, police, border enforcement, and school security.
But do militarist policy decisions actually keep our communities safe and secure? What if we instead invested in the things that help communities, countries, and the globe thrive?
Our new poster exhibit will explore these issues.
