Veterans For Peace Climate Crisis and Militarism Project is part of the world-wide movement to end the climate crisis and promote climate, environmental, racial, and economic justice. Our emphasis focuses on how US militarism, the single largest institutional source of greenhouse gasses on the planet, fuels the climate crisis.
Ways to Take Action:
What We Do:
- We promote full reporting of and reduction of US military emissions
- We support peace, oppose US militarism, and work to reduce and redirect the US military budget for human needs
- We stand for climate justice and against racism
- We educate and mobilize fellow veterans, journalists, politicians, workers, environmental activists and the general public about the role of the military in aggravating the climate crisis.
