The Peace Alliance has championed efforts to support the adoption of legislation to establish a cabinet-level US Department of Peacebuilding in our federal government.
Systemic racism is a significant driver of violence and a key obstacle to peace
in the United States.
– Department of Peacebuilding Act of 2021
THE DEPARTMENT OF PEACEBUILDING ACT OF 2021
(DoP 2021/ HR 1111) WAS INTRODUCED by Congresswoman Barbara Lee (CA-13). This historic and transformative legislation calls for a cabinet-level Department of Peacebuilding to make peace a much-needed national and ongoing focus. It addresses the interconnection of all life and the intersectionality of peace, justice, equality, planetary survival and other aspects of life.
We are in the midst of the Season for Nonviolence (SNV) (1/30 – 4/4/21). What better way to commemorate the SNV than a Department of Peacebuilding? We know there are root causes of violence and root conditions of peace. We know that violence prevention saves lives and money and raises the quality of life for all.
DoP 2021 is about creating a nonviolent and Beloved Community.

“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
– Robert F Kennedy
What is Peacebuilding?
Peacebuilding isn’t just the absence of conflict… it is a conscience action toward solving systemic issues that create that conflict.
