- The Dumbarton Oaks Conference (the Washington Conversations on International Peace and Security Organization) was an international conference at which the United Nations was formulated and negotiated among international leaders from August 21 - October 7 1944.
The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
