Sign the petition: Urge Congress to abolish the military draft.

skip to sign

The Selective Service System was created in 1940, as a response to World War II.

In the years since, its main accomplishment has been wasting hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars on maintaining an obsolete and unnecessary system.

While our armed forces are all-volunteer for now, keeping the Selective Service System alive keeps open the possibility of a return to a military draft.

The Pentagon agrees that no military or national security threat is imperative enough to reinstate a draft and abandon our volunteer army. As such, keeping the Selective Service System in place is wasteful, unjust, dangerous, and wrongheaded.

Add your name now and urge Congress to abolish the Selective Service System and close the door on a military draft.
