Department of Peace

Dear Peacemaker,
There is currently a bill in Congress, HR 808, that calls for a new cabinet post to advise the president in ways to reduce domestic and international violence, to create a U.S. Peace Academy, and to teach violence prevention and conflict resolution skills to all K-12 students.  Please contact your Congressperson and urge him/her to support HR 808.
In addition, there is an appeal for a related New York City Council Resolution 627 to support the creation of a U.S. Department of Peace.  It already has 15 co-sponsors.  Please contact your City Councilperson to support Resolution 627.
You can find your U.S. Congressperson and your NYC Councilperson on the web, along with contact information.  For NYC, you can also phone 311.
In peace,
Rosemarie

 "War destroys. And we must cry out for peace.
Peace sometimes gives the idea of stillness, but it is never stillness.
It is always an active peace.
I think that everyone must be committed in the matter of peace,
to do everything that they can,
what I can do from here.
Peace is the language we must speak."
Pope Francis
