"Another Mother for Peace" was a women's peace group born from the antipathy to the war in Vietnam. The stated purpose of this non-partisan, non-profit organization was "to educate women to take an active role in eliminating war as a means of solving disputes between nations, people and ideologies." The AMP logo, "War is not healthy for children or other living things", created by Lorraine Schneider, was prominent on its educational material and on medallions, peace notes, and greeting cards.
