The Fellowship of Reconciliation

Since 1915, the Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR) has carried on programs and educational projects concerned with domestic and international peace and justice, nonviolent alternatives to conflict, and the rights of conscience. An interfaith, tax-exempt organization, FOR promotes active nonviolence and has members from many religious, spiritual, and ethnic traditions. FOR-USA is a branch of the International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR), which coordinates affiliates in more than 50 countries.

In 1957, FOR publications director Alfred Hassler worked with comics professional Benton Resnik (of Graphic Information Services, formerly Toby Press) and an anonymous artist to produce the influential comic book Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story, with editorial input from Dr. King himself.
