Workbook to End War.
American Friends Service Committee, Philadelphia, PA. Peace Literature Service.
A workbook, written for use in local churches and synagogues, suggests projects and programs for concerned individuals who wish to contribute to an effort to end war. An introduction presents the rationale of the workbook, the creation of a network to end war, and ways in which groups and individuals can become involved in this endeavor. A chapter on resources describes materials for projects based around literature tables, information centers, posters, pictures, books, newsletters, films, simulation games, speakers, and study groups. Programs on the draft, non-violence, cold and nuclear war, militarism, crisis areas, development and transnational actions are outlined. Techniques are provided which influence national policy, such as registering citizen opinion, visiting and writing congressmen, writing to the President, writing letters to the editor, and identifying and working in the community with opinion leaders. A final chapter contains an annotated list of films and literature arranged by topic. A related document is ED 075 286. (Author/KSM)
