"Gulf War 2","Operation Iraqi Freedom","The War in Iraq" - whatever you call it, there is no denying that the conflict in Iraq is having a major impact on our country and our world.

think wants to make sure that you can decide for yourself whether the U.S. is on the right or wrong track, and to give you the tools to be informed to make a difference!

Below are a number of organizations that will allow you to join with others to make your voice heard -- regardless of whether you are for or against U.S. actions in Iraq. Some can also serve as excellent resources for learning more about the current conflict.

The list is by no means comprehensive. If there is an organization that you think should be on the list, let us know.



If You're Against the War:
If you are against the war, help ensure that the new Congress gets the message by spreading the word far and wide. Start by checking out these organizations:

 Not In Our Name
 United for Peace and Justice
 Gold Star Families for Peace
 Bring Them Home Now
 Iraqi Veterans Against War
 Peace Action


If You're For the War:
There are few formal grassroots organizations that have taken the lead in advocating war with Iraq. There are, however, multiple ways to demonstrate support for the troops overseas or for the Bush Administration's policies.

 Check out Move America Forward


You can enlist in one of the branches of the military:

 Army
 Navy
 Marines
 Air Force
 Coast Guard


Or learn about civilian jobs with the Department of Defense. To write a member of the armed services serving overseas, check out the Defense Department's Operation Dear Abby.

Read up on where The White House and the U.S. State Department stand.
