[SDCPJ] Updated and new online resources for counter-recruitment/demilitarization work

http://www.nnomy.org/
 
Announcing New RESOURCES!
 
For everyone who is concerned about the impact of military recruitment and the militarization of our schools –
 
The National Network Opposing the Militarization of Youth (NNOMY) has completely redesigned its Web site: www.nnomy.org. It now has broader content, more resources to aid organizers, and information to answer basic questions that arise among young people, parents, teachers and community activists.
 
Special features of the new site:

The documents archive is reorganized (now includes more school district policies, fact sheets and other helpful items.)

• Registered users can now directly upload documents (fliers, brochures, links, etc.) for the archive.

• Registered users can submit activity reports that will be publicly available and searchable.

• The organization database is now easier to search (current number of groups listed = 143).

• As always, users can add organizations to the national list of groups that are doing counter-recruitment/truth-in-recruitment work.

• The alternative careers lists for all states and several U.S. territories have been updated.

• A parallel site in Spanish is being built.

• An automatically updated news feed has been added for recruiting-related articles (courtesy of counter-recruitment.blogspot.com)

There are lots of other features, and in the coming months, more resources are planned for topics that include: info. for school staff, recruiting in specific communities, career fairs, general facts & figures, building allies, GI Bill and benefits, reporting recruiter abuse, military media/PR, and more.
 
Please visit the site (www.nnomy.org) and give us feedback. Let us know if you have problems using the site (there are bound to be some kinks), and whether you have suggestions for content.
