CONCERNED CITIZENS OF LAGUNA WOODS VILLAGE


Concerned Citizens of Laguna Woods Village was formed in 1981 to oppose nuclear proliferation. The group's vision has grown to include not only a continued commitment to peace, but also a commitment to social and economic justice, good government, and the environment. Lively dialog and activism characterize the group's interaction. The group also sponsors additional special events, documentary film screenings, book reviews, and a monthly newsletter. Benefits of membership include ability to attend all events without charge as well as a free subscription to the informative monthly newsletter.
