Millie Livingston and Martha Fort, two prominent members of Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, donated this collection to Special Collections at Sacramento State University. WILPF was originally created in 1915; Jane Addams served as its first president. The women of WILPF are dedicated to world disarmament, full rights for women, racial and economic justice, an end to all forms of violence. The Auburn chapter of Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom was created in 1981, with many members active in other local peace organizations in the Sacramento area, including Grandmothers for Peace.
