at The Clearing
Barrel had the honor of joining our sister organizations, Coffee
Strong (Lakewood, Washington) and the Under The Hood (Killeen Texas),
on a trip that took us from San Diego to Seattle.
During the tour,
our crew of GI coffeehouse leaders took part in an art performance,
sang along to freedom songs, did street outreach with free coffee,
collaborated with antimilitarist youth organizers and prison
abolitionists, chanted in a protest against drone warfare, and
provided resources and support to local veterans and their
stopped in over a dozen cities to present the voices of soldiers,
veterans, and military families and share our work to challenge war
and militarism from within the military and veteran community.
