WIN Magazine was started in January 1966 by the New York Workshop in Nonviolence, a New York City pacifist direct action group which functioned as an affiliate of both the Committee for Nonviolent Action and the War Resisters League. The Committee for Nonviolent Action, founded in 1957 to sponsor imaginative nonviolent direct action projects for peace, took over the financial responsibility for WIN in September 1966. At that time the full title became WIN Peace and Freedom through Nonviolent Action. In the fall of 1967, when the Committee for Nonviolent Action merged into the WRL, the latter group took on the responsibility for publishing WIN. However, WRL had no direct control over the editorial board and staff of the magazine. WIN moved moved from New York City to Rifton, N.Y. and back to Brooklyn during its existence. Because of failing financial circumstances, WIN printed its last issue in October 1983, 17 years after it had begun. WIN solicited articles and poetry promoting many liberal and radical causes including disarmament, draft resistance, war tax refusal, and other pacifist concerns as well as civil rights, women's liberation, and environmental protection. It supported nonviolence as the only way to resolve differences between individuals or groups. Several well-known photojournalists published their work in WIN Magazine.
