Resisting Militarism

A training for young adults on counter-military recruitment.

Memorial Day weekend, Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, New Mexico.

We will counter military recruitment by recruiting Peacemakers.

"Training for Trainers" - for 16 to 20 year-old young adults.
(Applicants who are as young as 14 or who are older will be considered if there is space available.)

This training is designed for young adults who are interested in countering the military recruitment efforts on their high school and college campuses. Our hope is that participants will return to their areas of the country prepared to offer similar trainings for other young adults.

Participants and leaders will tent camp together in the Ghost Ranch Campground, and there weekend will include hiking, a morning of whitewater rafting, and outdoor leadership skill-building.

The program is free. The only cost to participants will be travel to and from Albuquerque, NM.

The program will be limited to 14 participants who will be selected based on a written essay and application. It’s not too late to sign up! Contact Kirk Johnston at for details.
