bread and talk about crucial issues affecting the

actions, or just engage in a friendly discussion
with one another.

the bounty that others bring as well! The potluck

the aggressive and deceptive tactics
military recruiters use in our
public school system to get working-class
youth to join the U.S. armed forces.
Arlene will talk about the work that
CAMS has been doing in the Southern
California area to counteract the
influence of military recruiters in
our public schools (especially in
working-class Mexican and African-American
communities) and promote nonmilitary
alternatives to young people. Robert
will share about what happened with
him personally when he was recruited
into the U.S. Army. shortly
after dropping out from Santa Ana
High School and why he's decided to
speak out about it now. CAMS is a part
of the Human Rights Committee of
the United Teachers of Los Angeles
