Celebrate People’s History: Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) – Ten Years of Fighting for Peace and Justice” is a portfolio project that documents the successful moments of Iraq Veterans Against the War’s ten year history.

Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) was founded in July 2004 to give voice to the large number of active duty service members and veterans who were against the war, but were under various pressures to remain silent. Today, IVAW members are in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., Canada, and on numerous bases overseas. Over the past ten years IVAW members have spoken out and taken action to end the wars they served in and transform the society that fostered those wars. This portfolio uplifts this struggle in hopes it will continue to grow and provide lessons for generations to come.  IVAW has an unique and powerful history and it is time to celebrate and share it.
