Girl Scouts Troop 45145 started this petition to Local Girl Scout troops

The girls in our troop love the Earth. We love our community. And we care deeply about the world beyond our borders. That's why we are asking the Girl Scouts of America to discontinue their partnership with Raytheon, a known manufacturer of weapons of war. The members of Troop 45145 in Oak Park, IL, find that the partnership goes against the very pledge we recite at the beginning of each meeting, the same pledge that requires we "make the world a better place." 

We believe in peace over prosperity--safety over earnings. We certainly do not support the incredible profits earned at the expense of the safety of families, children, mothers and fathers, friends and grandparents caught in the seemingly endless wars overseas. Furthermore, we believe the lessons we learn about activism and women's rights are being used to further this violent and destructive agenda.

Raytheon produces weapons that are meant to cause great harm in the name of defense. Yet we've never felt less safe. Please join us as we start a dialogue with the Girl Scouts of America to end this partnership that is at odds with everything we believe as Girl Scouts. By signing our petition, you are joining us in our commitment to making the world a safer place for all girls, regardless of where they call home.
