Historical note

The Coalition on National Priorities and Military Policy (CNPMP), was founded in 1969. The Ad Hoc Coalition for a New Foreign Policy (AHCNFP) had been formed in January of 1973 as the Coalition to Stop Funding the War. This organization changed its name to AHCNFP in mid 1975. CNPMP and AHCNFP merged and re-named the new organization the Coalition for a New Foreign and Military Policy in 1976. In 1988 the group changed its name one more time to Coalition for a New Foreign Policy. It was the leading organization lobbying the U.S. Congress on behalf of a broad spectrum of peace and social justice organizations from the 1970s through the 1980s.
