Table of contents What's This?
Description
Contains the office files and working papers of a national organization committed to promoting world peace through law. Arranged in six series: National Office, Regional Division, Youth Advisory Council, International Liaison, Current Issues Files, and Participating Organizations. Includes correspondence, minutes of meetings, memoranda, statements, press releases, papers, drafts, leaflets, brochures, pamphlets, and booklets.
Background
Turn Toward Peace is a joint national effort of over 70 organizations working for a disarmed world under law, in which free societies can flourish. Turn Toward Peace does not pretend to speak for any of these organizations, but serves as a coordinating channel for their peace concerns. TTP has established a framework within which individuals and organizations representing the mainstream of American public opinion, along with pioneers in political and social thought, can explore the possibilities of finding alternatives to war and the threat of war -- alternatives that do not involve surrender of freedom or democratic values.
