Here, we present an index to the history of the Campus Antiwar Network (CAN) from October 26, 2002 to June 2006. CAN was the most important national independent antiwork network that was run by an for students. It presented the height of student activism against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in that CAN was independent and run by student activists. There is much that is not included, such as coverage of regional CAN conferences in other parts of the US (we're in the Northeast), and CAN's highly successful campus speaking tours (coordinated with partners such as the Muslim Students Association). We encourage people to visit for upcoming events, resources and information about CAN. Please consider ways to uplift this independent, democratic and grassroots student antiwar network. Special thanks to Katrina Yeaw, Kirstin Roberts, Emily Goldstein, Elizabeth Wrigley-Field, Monique Dols, Desmond Gardfrey , and Phil Gasper for giving suggestions.
