Grantees Civilian Soldier Alliance

Baltimore, MD
·
Founded in 2007, the Civilian Soldier Alliance is an organization of civilians working with veterans and active-duty service-members to build a GI resistance movement towards a just foreign policy. We work with and support service-members and veterans to withdraw military support from the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, supporting resistance within the military that empowers service members to have a voice and develop as leaders organizing for change. To help build this GI-led movement, we work with fellow civilians to build a reliable, committed and experienced support structure for military personnel.

We believe that organizing to withdraw military support from the war can not only win tangible victories, but can also be a transformative process whereby vets and civilians develop the skills and confidence necessary to organize for long-term change.
