The Oklahoma Center for Conscience has helped a number of active duty service members who are seeking status as conscientious objectors. Such status is allowed within the Military Code of Justice, but is difficult to prove to their satisfaction.
We are fortunate that OCC’s co-founder, James M. Branum, right here in Oklahoma is one of the few attorneys concentrating in this work. He has traveled all over the country defending GIs, and is also becoming a highly sought after GI Rights trainer.
Costs for providing legal services include travel and accommodations for James, as well as his legal research and documentation, phone calls, etc.
We have now added the ability to donate to our work online here on this site. There are several options for donations, and we hope you can find one that works for you.
Another way to help is to use the flier here and reproduce and distribute it through your own publications and networks. We are working on producing a variety of media that can be used to promote our work. Please give us your feedback and ideas.
