Program Assistant Erin Connolly partnered with Abigail Stowe-Thurston of the Friends Committee on National Legislation to write about a new war from the perspective of millennials in Teen Vogue.
“Before our tenth birthdays, our country chose war. Politicians and pundits promised our parents that only an invasion of Iraq could prevent a mushroom cloud from posing an existential threat to us all. The 107th Congress, motivated by the Bush administration’s falsehoods and fearmongering, thrust our country into conflict. Today, the so-called War on Terror eclipses the globe — from Afghanistan to Niger — and our generation pays the price.”
