Copyright and Rights Information
The Center for Economic Conversion was located in Mountain View, California. It was a nonprofit organization which promoted the conversion of the military-based U.S. economy to a civilian-based, peace-oriented, and environmentally sustainable one. It was founded in 1975 as a project of the American Friends Service Committee, but became an independent organization in 1978. The group was originally called the Mid-Peninsula Conversion Project, and changed its name to Center for Economic Conversion in 1982. CEC built coalitions with other peace and justice and environmental organizations to build the conversion movement. CEC was a leading advocate for using military base conversion as a tool to foster sustainable development.
