Selective Service Registration Workshop

Whether to register with the Selective Service System for the draft is an important issue for 18-year old men and their parents that deserves thoughtful consideration. Recently, the US Senate passed a bill requiring 18-year old women to register for the draft.  If that bill becomes law, women will be required to register with the Selective Service System for the draft as well.

Westtown School is offering a 1.5 hour workshop for Westtown School students, high school age youth of Concord Quarter and other interested individuals (including parents of high school students) that will help participants become acquainted with the legal issues involved in Selective Service registration, especially regarding Quakers who may wish to claim Conscientious Objector status in the future. The session will be conducted by Margaret Haviland, Assistant Head for Faculty and Program at Westtown School and a member of the Religious Society of Friends at Westtown Friends Meeting. Margaret is a trained workshop leader who has been conducting annual workshops on this issue since 2002.
