Some very exciting news out of California. Thanks to our CA Peace Alliance organizers and other key supporters, the CA Democratic party recently endorsed legislation to establish a U.S. Department of Peacebuilding and a peacebuilding platform.

CA Democratic party (CDP) only endorses a handful of bills each session — and it’s some of the most comprehensive peacebuilding support in any party platform in the nation. This could be real trend setter.
