Admin/Biographical History The Nebraska Peace Council was organized in the mid-1930s in order to serve as a clearinghouse and a common council board for the peace movement in the state. In this role, it coordinated the peace efforts of a variety of local organizations in Nebraska. Its stated goals were, "to build an effective peace machinery; to work towards the reduction of war machinery; and to engage in widespread education in order to help relieve tensions between nations." With the entry of the United States into the war in 1941, the work of the Nebraska Peace Council ended.
