This past April Congressman Keith Ellison submitted to the Congressional Record a notice of what the Kellogg Briand  Pact is and our chapter’s involvement in calling attention to  this Pact that outlaws war. Additionally he encouraged members to look for the winners of a Peace Essay   Contest   facilitated   by   the   West   Suburban Peacemakers of Chicago entitled “How can the U.S. obey the law against war?”  The best of these essays are to be submitted to Congress in August.
