Review for Veterans For Peace, Linus Pauling Chapter 132, Corvallis, OR, Corvallis, OR, USA
The Corvallis VFP chapter is very active in the local community--making connections with the local sustainability coalition, the men's homeless shelter, and working in tandem with other local peace and justice organizations and Oregon State University. They have an active truth-in-recruitment effort within the local high schools, and also participate in "Career Day" providing information to high schoolers who are simultaneously being recruited heavily by the military. They often work with the local branch of the Women's League for International Peace and Freedom (WILPF) to bring in guest speakers/presentations, and they are a co-sponsor of the "Second Saturdays Concert Series for a Better World" which has raised nearly $40,000 in 9 years for local charities.
