Veterans for Peace, Inc. (VFP) is a national non-profit 501(c)(3) educational and humanitarian organization dedicated to the abolishment of war. The Madison Chapter is named in honor of Clarence Kailin, long-time Madison peace activist and social reformer, who was a founding member. Clarence died in late 2009 at the age of 95. We honor him by carrying on his name and making efforts to establish a more peaceful and just nation.
