Circular pin-back button inscribed in white lettering on black ground: "NO WAR ON IRAQ"
Poet Jen Clausen distributed anti-war pins to other members of her poetry group, including N-YHS staff member, Steve Turtell, at a session held in spring 2003. Ms. Clausen obtained the pins from another group to which she belongs, "Prospect Lefferts Voices for Peace and Justice," a Brooklyn community group that had been buying the pins in bulk (75 and 100 at a time) and then selling or giving them away.
Gift of Steve Turtell
