If you are new to this form of resistance, you will find lots of information about HOW TO RESIST and HOW TO REDIRECT on this website or by calling our HOTLINE or contacting one of our counselors.

Current resisters looking for information on a particular topic might look at the CONSEQUENCES page or the "Practical Series" on the PUBLICATIONS page. Do you know about the WTR PENALTY FUND?
