Hosts

Northern California War Tax Resistance (NCWTR) provides information and support for conscientious war tax resisters in Northern California (primarily the San Francisco Bay Area). We operate the People’s Life Fund (an alternative fund for resisted taxes), offer informational workshops, provide individual counseling, do public outreach, and hold demonstrations. The National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC) is a coalition of local, regional, and national groups supportive of war tax resistance. The office is based in Brooklyn, N.Y., with network members around the country.
