Ongoing Educational campaign
“In response to requests from activists across the country, this summer, A.N.S.W.E.R. – on a national level – will produce educational materials, including fact sheets, brochures, pamphlets, booklets, and more. We will focus on a wide range of issues, including (but not limited to) countries that the Bush administration is attacking, social service cuts versus military spending, racist repression at home, and the expansion of U.S. militarism globally.

We encourage local organizers to use these resources to carry out mass leafleting and tabling campaigns in cities around the country. A.N.S.W.E.R. national organizers are available to speak at forums, teach-ins and community meetings.”
