Beyond Border Patrol

WRL has long challenged military and police recruitment. Our newest counter-recruitment resource, Beyond Border Patrol, takes on the lies of Border Patrol recruiters - particularly in the borderlands - and debunks them with the realities of the job and the agency's legacy of abuse. Like military and police recruiters, Border Patrol recruiters target poor people and young people of color in border communities, and promote careers in law enforcement as a stable way of life and a means to "protect" your community.

What is nonviolence?
Revolutionary nonviolence is an active form of resistance to systems of privilege and domination. It’s not simply the absence of violence, and it’s certainly not passive. Nonviolence is a philosophy for liberation, an approach to movement building, a tactic of non-cooperation, and defense. It is a willingness to break unjust laws and take action. It’s a powerful practice we employ to resist and transform our world. People all over the world have effectively used nonviolence in their work for peace and justice.

J Is For Jannat Tshirt

Honor WRL's 2016 Peace Award winner Jannat Alghezzi, of OWFI, the Organization of Women's Freedom in Iraq!

Jannat serves as OWFI's Media Director and coordinates between OWFI's growing number of shelters for women escaping domestic violence and ISIS.  Jannat herself came up through OWFI's shelter system, which she desribes as "schools" of politicization and empowerment.  WRL's 2016 Peace Award affirmed the importance of a focus on liberatory movements in Iraq now, in the face of a global image associated only with war and sectarianism.
