The Peace Alliance is committed to growing a movement of a million strong for peace. Together, we will create a critical mass necessary for peacebuilding to be our societal norm. We can make it happen!
We are a grassroots educational and advocacy organization focused on transforming how individuals, communities, and nations respond to conflict and violence. The prevention and intervention solutions we promote have proven effective in saving lives and dollars while enhancing cooperation skills and increasing social resilience.
Make this Mother’s Day a call for our nation to prioritize peacebuilding by establishing a U.S. Department of Peacebuilding and by practicing peace in our personal lives, the community, schools, a more humane justice system and internationally.
Please call and write your Members of Congress and request they sign on to critical legislation ensuring that no president can unilaterally launch a nuclear war. HR 669/S200, the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017. As president of the United States, Donald Trump currently has supreme authority to preemptively launch a nuclear strike. NO president should have the exclusive power to end all life.
In the aftershock of the 2016 presidential election, the CA Democratic Party (CDP) held its pre-scheduled Executive Board (E-Board) meeting where Democratic Party officials and grassroots activists came together to assess who the Party is and wants to be. The CA Peace Alliance/ Campaign for a US Department of Peacebuilding (DoP/ HR 1111), together with the San Diego Kids for Peace, was there as voice for peace and peacebuilding, which were rarely mentioned in the 2016 elections.
As attendees processed presidential and other election results at the CA Democratic Party Executive Board (CDP E-Board), the CA Democratic Party resolved to defend its many accomplishments in working conditions, climate, health care, immigration and protecting the rights of all Californians.
In our national dialogue, peacebuilding often gets lost in the cacophony of divisiveness and diversion. During the week of International Day of Peace (IDoP) (September 21st), supporters of legislation to create a cabinet-level Department of Peacebuilding (DoP or HR 1111), commemorated IDoP by building peace into our conversations at the offices of nearly 90 members of Congress, including at least 73 Democrats and 15 Republicans.
