People’s Coalition for Peace and Justice

The Peoples Coalition for Peace and Justice was founded in 1970s  with the primary object to oppose U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.[1] The PCPJ was created as a successor to the Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam, which itself was formed by members of the Communist Party USA. The organization staged many successful anti-war rallies in the late 1960s and early 1970s.[2]
