The War Resisters League is an American pacifist organization founded in 1923 by people who were opposed to World War I. It is the oldest secular pacifist organization in the United States and is considered to be one of the leading pacifist groups in the nation today. In compliance with the Espionage Act they did not protest World War II, but have actively protested nuclear weapons testing, civil defense drills, and subsequent wars. They have also taken part in many civil rights causes including feminism and anti-racism.
