Taking Peacebuilding to the Party: CA Democratic Party endorses creation of a U.S. Department of Peacebuliding

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. This is a very meaningful development.

This could be real trend setter.
