In the late 1960’s, Rennie was the coordinator of the largest anti-war and civil rights coalition in the United States. He was one of the Chicago 7. He organized demonstrations in Chicago that were watched on television by more people than those who watched the first man landing on the moon.
Rennie traveled to Hanoi during the Vietnam War to bring home American prisoners of war. He joined a young John Kerry and thousands of Vietnam veterans who returned their medals and awards won in Vietnam back to Congress in protest to the Vietnam War. He coordinated the largest arrest in American history when a football stadium was turned into a temporary lock-up for American dissent.
Once called the “most dangerous man in the United States” by the vice president of the Untied States, he was widely respected by his own generation and has been featured on numerous network television documentaries and media forums, from the Legends series produced by CBS to Larry King Live, Barbara Walters, VH1, CNN and other network programs.
He is currently chairman of the Foundation for Humanity and with the international director of Live Aid, co-producer of the upcoming New Humanity World Tour to inspire a new global movement today.
