The No So El Army Justice Tour description:

No Soy El Army Bilingual Justice Tour is coming!

Come together to share how the wars on immigrants, youth, the poor and abroad are affecting our town and your family.

War is present in our community whether our children are being sent to Iraq and Afghanistan, federal agents are deporting our families, or the war on poor is cutting our most vital services. Latino veterans and activists on this tour will share how we can combat the different facets of war in our home towns and lead a discussion on the biggest threat that you see for the future of your family and what alternatives exist for youth graduating from high school beyond the military.

No Soy El Army features Latino Veterans and Activist who will share their experiences with fighting in and against the wars at home and abroad. We will discuss how war and the military affect the local communities, hear your experiences and learn about alternatives for youth considering the military.
