(Northampton, MA) — The American Friends Service Committee is pushing for the right to distribute anti-military literature to students at Smith Voke. The group was barred from the regional vocational school last year without explanation. Director Jeff Napolitano says his group wants to educate students about alternatives to the military. The school’s new superintendent says no groups should be able to visit the school, including military recruiters, until a policy is crafted. Trustees will vote January 21st on a ban against all groups that don’t provide either educational, employment or scholarship opportunities.
