In 1986 six hundred people marched across the United States to demonstrate their opposition to the world-wide nuclear arms race. The march took nine months from California to Washington, D.C. The marchers wrote: "we will create a non-violent focus for positive change; the imperative being that nuclear weapons are politically, socially, economically and morally unjustifiable, and that, in any number, they are unacceptable." The GPM was also a traveling intentional and communal society.
Robin Harper is active in the peace movement. During the 1950s and 1960s he protested nuclear weapons and missile defense systems. The papers in this collection reflect that involvement.
Items held: letter dated April 25, 1913, and the Platform of the International Association.
