Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors (CCCO)

The Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors (CCCO) supports conscientious objectors and promotes individual and collective resistance to war and preparations for war. We seek to provide full and accurate information about military life and war to individuals affected by military service, conscription, and recruitment. Since our founding in 1948, CCCO’s counselor network has helped tens of thousands of people serving in the military or facing conscription. Most of CCCO’s income is from individual contributions; all donations are fully tax-deductible.

Volunteer Opportunities: Hotline Volunteer. We are currently looking for volunteers for our GI Rights Hotline. Help to stop the military machine by helping individual GIs get out! CCCO is part of a volunteer network of non-profit, non-governmental organizations who provide information on military discharges, grievance and complaint procedures and other civil rights. Volunteers go through a one day training, and make a 6 month commitment to volunteer at least 2 hours a week in our Oakland office. Volunteers answer hotline phone calls and emails.
