The Peoples Coalition for Peace & Justice (PCPJ) organized a November 6, 1971 group of regional anti-war rallies in 15 major U.S. cities. Posters and buttons were widely circulated promoting the rallies. Over 100,000 people participated, with the greatest turn-outs being in San Francisco with 40,000, New York with 30,000, and Denver with 15,000 in attendance.

PCPJ was formed in 1970 to protest against the war in Southeast Asia and to confront social issues such as poverty, labor, repression and sexism in the United States. PCPJ was created as a successor to the Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam, which itself was formed by members of the Communist Party USA. The group organized several campaigns including the People's Peace Treaty, Citizen's Action Pledge, and Nixon Eviction campaign.
