CCW's Mission Statement
CCW is a non-profit organization that advocates for the rights of conscience, opposes military conscription, and serves all conscientious objectors to war.
The Center on Conscience & War (CCW), formerly the National Interreligious Service Board for Conscientious Objectors (NISBCO), founded in 1940, works to extend and defend the rights of conscientious objectors. CCW supports all those who oppose their participation in war, including those members of the US military who, following a crisis of conscience, seek discharge as conscientious objectors. CCW also assists others who oppose their participation in war and the preparation for war, including youth required to register with Selective Service; individuals seeking US Citizenship who wish to take the alternative, non-violent oath; and citizens of other countries facing mandatory military service. CCW opposes conscription, and, in the event of a new military draft, will assist in the placement of conscientious objectors in alternative service programs, as we did in previous draft years.
CCW is a founding members of the GI Rights Hotline, a national referral and counseling service for military personnel.
All services are provided free of charge.
The Center on Conscience & War is a 501c3 non-profit organization, and donations are tax deductible to the extent of the law.
