Militarism is no future

On July 13, 2018, the US Army announced that Austin was chosen as the site for its proposed new Army Futures Command Center.  We believe this marks a step backward for Austin or for any community that would choose to use its human and physical resources to design more weapons and systems of war.   This is a misdirection of Austin's creative culture and technical expertise, and we stand by our objections to it. 
We will continue to promote Sustainable Options for Youth in our high schools and raise awareness about the human costs to each other and to our planet of unchecked militarism and war.
