Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors

The Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors (CCCO) is a military enlistment. It was active in supporting conscientious objectors and draft evaders during the Vietnam War.

CCCO's present activities include counter-recruitment activism through its "Military Out of Our Schools" program, production of a youth magazine, AWOL! Youth for Peace and Revolution, in collaboration with the War Resisters League, and a "Third World Outreach Program", which focuses on the issue of the "poverty draft," where some impoverished young people, disproportionately people of color, feel that they are coerced into military service by a lack of options.

CCCO has previously served as the clearinghouse of the national Center on Conscience and War (formerly NIBSCO).
