Antiwar/Antimilitarism

Let It Shine

By Kathy Kelly, August 25, 2015

“This little light of mine, I’m gonna’; let it shine! Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.’

Imagine children lustily singing the above lines which eventually became a civil rights anthem. Their innocence and happy resolve enlightens us. Yes! In the face of wars, refugee crises, weapon proliferation and unaddressed climate change impacts, let us echo the common sense of children. Let goodness shine. Or, as our young friends in Afghanistan have put it, #Enough! They write the word, in Dari, on the palms of their hands and show it to cameras, wanting to shout out their desire to abolish all wars.

If I Had a Trillion Dollars Trainings

Between February and May WNPJ did trainings with multiple youth organizations in Madison and Milwaukee where they got a chance to create their own federal discretionary budget and discuss the priorities of their communities.  This was part of a broader effort to encourage youth to make a video about what they would do with $1 Trillion if the could spend it on their communities.
