Join the supporters behind Coffee Strong, Under the Hood and the Clearing Barrel as they come to Portland on the G.I. Resistance CoffeeHouse Tour. These G.I. Resistance CoffeeHouses are located near large military bases in Washington, Texas and Germany and provide service members, veterans and their families safe places for healing, to exchange unfiltered information, to speak about their concerns and experiences and to organize for a more just and peaceful world by standing against war and militarism.

Present-day g.i. resistance coffeehouse organizers will share more about diverse forms their organizations have taken, including cafe and outreach center, bar and coffeehouse, and military and veterans rights center. They will also share more about our plans to continue anti-war organizing in the military community, including the launch of a new radio station, community education program and more.

Sponsors are Coffee Strong, Under the Hood and the Clearing Barrel.
