While the war in Vietnam raged on, one of the largest and most successful youth-led resistance movements in American history was growing at home.
Hundreds of thousands of young men opposed to an unjust war said NO to being drafted into the military, risking up to five years in federal prison. Their individual moral courage and collective nonviolent actions helped end a tragic war and the draft.
Directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Judith Ehrlich, The Boys Who Said NO! tells for the first time the inspiring story and impact of the draft resistance movement.
Our film is now finished after seven years and screening in its first major film festival!! We're preparing to launch the film into a changed world.
"Truly inspiring and informative, with a powerful message... an essential film that everyone who cares about justice and peace will want to see.”
–David Cortright, Director of Peace Accords Matrix, University of Notre Dame
