|Description||The Peace and Freedom Party of California has twice been part of national electoral formations: First in 1968, as part of the national Peace and Freedom Party that had a convention in Ann Arbor, and next as the largest affiliate of the Peoples Party, that ran presidential tickets in 1972 and 1976. Now, the PFP is again seeking to organize and seek ballot status in states outside California, for 2012 and beyond. |
A conference in San Francisco on December 10 and 11, 2011, decided to form the "Peace and Freedom Alliance." Participants from affiliates (and representatives of two not-yet-affiliated organizations) agreed that the National Organizing Committee 2012, a delegated body with representation from each affiliate, will be the governing body of the Alliance for the time being. The NOC2012 will consider united ballot-access projects in specific states. Meanwhile, existing or newly-formed organizations in the various states are invited to affiliate (using either the Peace and Freedom name or whatever name they choose).
