Since 2008, the We Are Not Your Soldiers project has visited many high school and college campuses bringing the message that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have taken a deadly moral, psychological and physical toll on soldiers while bringing death, grievous injury, displacement and suffering to the people of those countries. The We Are Not Your Soldiers project is ready to visit your school or classroom in the Spring semester with Iraq/Afghanistan-era veterans to talk about their on-the-ground experience in occupying countries, where civilians pay the price.
In response to the US military’s increasing use of drone warfare, we have developed an additional format focused on drones. This can be done either as a stand-alone program or in addition to the visits with the veterans – to broaden the relationship of We Are Not Your Soldiers to curriculum in high schools and colleges. We can provide screenings of two films on drone warfare – one a documentary, the other a short feature film – and then engage students in a follow-up discussion. Tell us your preference – either film or both.
If you are not currently an educator or a student, please pass on this information to others who would be interested.
We look forward to hearing from you. Contact We Are Not Your Soldiers at firstname.lastname@example.org or (866) 973-4463.
