John McAuliff is Executive Director and Founder of the Fund for Reconciliation & Development and has been a lifelong activist in student, civil rights, and peace movements. He served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Peru. In 1985, he founded the Fund for Reconciliation and Development to achieve normal US diplomatic, educational, cultural, and economic relations with post-war Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. After that was achieved in the late 1990s, he changed the primary focus of the organization to obtaining similar normal US relations with Cuba, working especially in policy, travel, and educational and cultural exchange.
