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 2023
(DoP 2023/ 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.
What better way to make the Season for Nonviolence EVERYDAY than to establish 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 2023 is about creating a nonviolent community where ALL are able to thrive.
