¡Somos Una America! Ending US Military Repression in the Americas Join PLACA and the Syracuse Peace Council for an open discussion on U.S. military training and funding to authoritarian regimes in Latin America & the Caribbean. Since 1946, the SOA has trained over 64,000 Latin American soldiers. These graduates have consistently used their skills to wage a war against their own people. Among those targeted by SOA graduates are educators, union organizers, religious workers, student leaders, and others who work for the rights of the poor. Hundreds of thousands of Latin Americans have been tortured, raped, assassinated, “disappeared,” massacred, and forced into exile by those trained at the School of the Americas. On April 26th at 4PM we will show a short film about the international movement to close the SOA, followed by a discussion on opportunities to get involved in independent efforts to close the US Army School and work for justice in the Americas.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
