Military Families Speak Out

Military Families Speak Out is an organization of military families who are opposed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and have a loved one currently serving in the military, who has served in the military since 9/11, or who has died as a result of these wars. As people with loved ones in the military, members have both a special need and a unique role to play in speaking out. Bill has been in Military Families Speak Out from the beginning and serves on its governing board.

On Earth Peace's Impact on Bill

“When I first came to OEP, like many older white people in this country who came of age during the Vietnam War, I was mostly interested just in stopping war. My work with OEP has helped me see the interconnected web of racism, sexism, and other forms of oppression and violence that makes the system and culture of endless war possible. Only by ending these at the same time, can we truly put an end to war...”
