    SMC = Student Mobilization Committee 1 1/4 Member Button c1966
    AKA Student Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam
    Founded in 1966 as the Student Mobilization Committee organization expanded its name in 1968

    The Student Mobilization Committee was formed in 1966 “to coordinate opposition to U.S. involvement in the war in Vietnam among college and high school students. Originally named The Vietnam Day Committee the SMC organized protests on campuses and in cities in addition to being one of the first groups that included civilians and soldiers alike. Based on a letter from 1969, the SMC had centers in 15 cities around the country but began to disband, like many anti-Vietnam groups in the early 1970s (1973) in conjunction with the U.S. beginning to withdrawing troops from Vietnam.

    The SMC organized and carried out the following student campus strike in November,1968.
    The student led strike on the campus of San Francisco State University was the longest campus strike in the history of the United States. The five month strike defined the University's core values of equity and social justice.
    The strike laid the groundwork for the establishment of the College of Ethnic Studies. It also inspired the establishment of ethnic studies and programs on other American universities. A dozen years after the strike, a report issued by the Education Resource Information Center stated that 439 colleges in the United States offered a total of 8,805 ethnic studies courses.
