About the Student Peace action network
SPAN's work is particularly important at a tumultuous time like this. The current administration seems determined to flex its military muscle no matter what the cost; to pursue corporate interests at the expense of human life; to wriggle out of (and outright violate) international treaties; to drive the country into budget deficits with excessive military spending while our schools are starved for funds. It is pushing for new nuclear weapons and more uses for them. It is fueling anti-Americanism abroad. So, what are we going to do?
Through coordinated direct actions, demonstrations, teach-ins, letter-writing campaigns, dissemination of materials, and other tactics, SPAN activists all over the country challenge policies like these and work for non-violent, constructive alternatives.
