Squeezed in between superstorm Sandy and the election madness, the 2012 joint convention of IVAW and CivSol was a brief oasis of intentionality and solidarity. We gathered in Baltimore, Maryland just a day after the storm. People traveled from across the country. From waterlogged New York City to the sunny San Francisco Bay Area, from Texas to Toronto, veterans, active duty service members, and civilian allies gathered not only to continue the struggle against militarism but also to celebrate our community of activists.
