The War Legacies Project is a not-for-profit organization based in Vermont that focuses on the long-term impacts of war to develop a fuller understanding of the costs of war, increase public understanding of these costs, foster public dialogue about the impacts of war and conduct programs that help mitigate the impacts of war at home and abroad. 

At the moment our main focus of work is addressing the long term health and environmental consequences of the use of Agent Orange and other herbicides during the Vietnam war. Much of our work focuses on the impacts of these herbicides in Vietnam. However, we also address their impacts on US veterans and veterans of the other ally forces and on communities where the herbicides were manufactured, stored and tested.  

WLP also collaborates with the Legacies of War and other organizations working to raise awareness and encourage more humanitarian assistance for the on-going impacts of cluster munitions and other explosive remnants  of the war.
