You too can speak out against the draft and draft registration! Write a letter to the editor or an article for your student or community newspaper or Web site. Post a comment online, on social media or in your blog. Post a quick #iobject #iwillresist #nodraft video stating why you oppose the draft. Let the world know that you oppose the draft and draft registration, that you will resist if drafted, and that you will support and defend others who resist. We especially want to hear from women who plan not to register with the Selective Service System when you turn 18, if you are required to do so. We can publish your resistance statement, with your name or anonymously, or link to your statement or video. You can reach us at resisters@hasbrouck.org.
