Peace and Freedom Party
June 23, 1967
The party seeks to end oppression and discrimination against women, sexual and social minorities. It is also an advocate of indexing minimum wage to cost of living, a universal basic income system, free education, stronger union rights, and converting the national economy from a military to a peace-oriented one.
The Peace and Freedom Party was founded in 1967 by a group of civil rights and anti-war activists. Foremost on their agenda at the time was an end to the Vietnam War and enhanced rights for African Americans and minorities, achieved through a peaceful nationwide social revolution.
