NEW YORK — The Rev. William Sloane Coffin, a prominent anti-war activist during the 1960s, announced Sunday that he was resigning as minister of Riverside Church to head a new national peace group.

Coffin said he would leave at the end of the year to become president of Sane-Freeze, a merger of two Washington-based groups, the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy and the Nuclear Weapons Freeze Campaign. Coffin, 63, served as Yale University chaplain from 1958 to 1975.
