Hide Profile

American Union Against Militarism (AUAM); founded in New York City in 1915 as the Anti-Militarism Committee; opposed militarism in World War I, defended conscientious objectors and civil liberties during the war, worked for a just and lasting peace, and opposed peacetime conscription after the war; also known at times as the Anti-Preparedness Committee, Truth About Preparedness Committee, American Union for a Democratic Peace, and the League for an American Peace; closed its offices early in 1922, expecting that its work would be handled by the National Council for Reduction of Armaments.
