For 75 Years the Center on Conscience and War has been working to assist those whose conscience leads them to object to war, as conscientious objectors. Hear from past and current conscientious objectors, including:
- Bill Galvin, CCW’s Counseling Coordinator and Vietnam-era CO
- Bill Yolton, CCW’s former Director
- former Senior Airman Jarrod Grammel, whose CO application was approved earlier this year
Learn about the current legal climate for rights of conscience in the U.S. from Peter Goldberger, a local lawyer, from Ardmore, PA, who has practiced CO law for some three decades.
