About Us

The War Resisters League affirms that all war is a crime against humanity. We are determined not to support any kind of war, international or civil, and to strive nonviolently for the removal of all causes of war, including racism, sexism and all forms of exploitation. As a leading radical voice in the antiwar movement, WRL's revolutionary nonviolent strategy builds cross-movement analysis and international solidarity, supports conscientious objectors and GI resisters, challenges military recruitment, advocates for war tax resistance, against the use of teargas in prisons, and trains for and organizes nonviolent direct action. WRL's No SWAT Zone campaign challenges state violence and the militarization of policing, focusing on the proliferation of national and international SWAT expos that train police in repressive tactics against social movements rising globally and domestically.
