Historical and long-term work

The 1966 mission of CALC was to mobilize opposition to the Vietnam War. Over forty years later, CALC continues to challenge militarism, but has deepened our mission to educate and mobilize for peace, human dignity and social, racial and economic justice.

Transitioning from a predominantly white peace group to social justice organization with diverse leadership and membership has been our journey. Our experienced activists find themselves mentoring, supporting and aiding organizers and new activists, including youth.  We work to build collaborative networks and allies, with a focus on groups historically kept apart and advance the social justice movement by addressing root causes, the connections between pathways of oppression and the importance of working with allies.
