Truth in Recruitment will be hosting a Summit on Youth and the Military on Saturday, October 12, to provide the Santa Maria community with information about the potential effects of the Selective Service System and frequent presence of military recruiters in area junior high and high schools.
Attendees will learn about changes Congress may make to the Selective Service System (SSS) that could include women having to register for the draft as young men do now. There also will be presentations on the realities of military recruitment within local schools, and the issues deported veterans and their families face. People attending are encouraged to voice their experiences and concerns.
Lunch, refreshments, childcare, and language interpretation will be provided.
We are also looking for volunteers to help that day. Students can earn community service hours!
