The 1966 mission of CALC was to mobilize opposition to the Vietnam War. Over forty years later, CALC continues to challenge militarism, but has deepened our mission to educate and mobilize for peace, human dignity and social, racial and economic justice.
We address root causes of oppression by seeking to change attitudes, behaviors, and policy through education, activism, and cultural means.
We challenge ourselves and others to address privilege and power, to work collaboratively as effective allies, and help build leadership, especially for dis-empowered and marginalized people.
We work with and for a multi-racial, multi-class, multi-gendered, multi-generational movement on social justice issues and projects.
