Proposition P, called the Peace Proposition, was on the San Francisco municipal ballot in November, 1967 and advocated the immediate cessation of American involvement in Viet Nam. Although the city would later be regarded as the 'peace capital' of the country, voters in 1967 had yet to be enlightened, and advocates beat the bushes for support. As the election loomed, Bill Graham put together a concert of rising favorites and big local names to benefit a last-minute blitz for the proposition, and Jim Blashfield painted the poster with a heavy, if artistic, dose of symbolism. The Proposition was rejected, 2-1.
