 File — Box: 2, Reel: 124, microdex: 6

Scope and Contents

The YWCA of the U.S.A. advocates for global peace and disarmament as part of its mission toward the betterment of life for women and all world citizens. Through pamphlets, bulletins, articles, reports and books they encourage education on matters of global politics, military training, peace, neutrality, munitions and war. These materials often present arguments for and against positions, discuss applicable laws and legislation, suggest ways in which women can become involved in peace activities and may even present personal views as editorials. The YWCA of the U.S.A. issues its official stances through conference resolutions or published materials and supports other organizations through conference attendance, participation and information sharing.
