U.S. Peace Council

On Nov. 1, 1979, the Communist Party USA newspaper Daily World credited three veteran Communist Party USA organizers for laying the organizational basis for the U.S. Peace Council by "working for years to establish local committees, organize delegations from the U.S. to international meetings of the WPC, and distribute information about the Peace Council to activists in the United States." Those named included Pauline Royce Rosen, "who coordinated all WPC activities in the U.S. for many years" and led what in effect was a CPUSA front serving as a cover for the WPC, the National Center to Slash Military Spending, which dissolved in 1980 and recommended to its supporters they join the USPC and CNFMP; Sylvia Kushner of the Chicago Peace Council; and Elsie Monjar of the Los Angeles Peace Council.[2]
