DE-MIL-I-TA-RISE consists of 29 screenprints in a screen-printed folder and is accompanied by a booklet that provides ample context for the Dissenters’ pro-peace movement.

Dissenters is a movement organization leading a new generation of young people to reclaim resources from the war industry, reinvest in life-giving institutions, and repair collaborative relationships with the earth and people around the world. They are building local teams of young people across the country to force institutions to divest from war and militarism and reinvest in what our communities actually need. From campuses to congress, they are building grassroots power to cut off war elites once and for all.

In an effort to lift up this important work, Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative organized the DE-MIL-I-TA-RISE portfolio and booklet for use in Dissenters organizing campaigns, popular education projects, and cultural programming
