Please join Iraq Veterans Against the War as we officially re-launch our organization as About Face: Veterans Against the War.

IVAW was founded in 2004 to amplify the voices of active duty service members and veterans who were against an unjust war and under various pressures to remain silent. For over a decade, IVAW has lead the movement of veterans and GIs working to end the US military's occupation of Iraq. During that time, we built a grassroots base of over 3,000 veterans and active duty personnel who have served in the United States military since September 11, 2001, and who have since done an About Face: turning against the wars at home and abroad.

We want to share with you — our movement family — who we are, what we stand for, and where we are going. We want to honor our history, look toward our future, and uplift our members and comrades who are organizing against militarism.

Come celebrate with us! We'll be kicking off our annual national convention with spoken word and songs from vets and a set from REBEL DIAZ!

Happy hour from 6-7pm.
Program starts at 7. Suggested donation of $20, nobody turned away.
