Hosts

Kansas City Area War Tax Resisters are part of a wider network of activists in the Kansas City, Kan. & Mo. communities. Much of their focus these days is opposing the new nuclear weapons parts plant being built just outside Kansas City, Mo., but they have a long history of working for justice and human needs and against nuclear weapons and all the systems that are required to build and launch them—many of which are planted in Kansas, Missouri, and neighboring states. 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.
