An important story was featured on PBS NewsHour yesterday, focusing on Resotorative Justice "talking circles" in a Colorado High School. Colorado is a national leader in pivoting away from the more punitive or punishment oriented models to the more restorative -- focusing on how to heal the harm and restore relationships.

We received our full requested ask for Conflict Stabilization Operation Bureau, bringing it up to $45.2 million (up from $27m in 2013), Complex Crises Fund received the full $40m (up from $36m in 2013) and there was also an additional $6,016,000 for U.S. Institute of Peace, bringing their total up to $37m (that's still short of our $41m ask, but a healthy increase from last year). You can learn more about these three agencies here.

During the Season for Nonviolence we will focus on peacebuilding by seeking additional cosponsors of the Department of Peacebuilding Act (HR 808), which was introduced by Congresswoman Barbara Lee (CA-13) on February 25, 2014. The Season for Nonviolence is the 64-day period from January 30th to April 4th memorializing the dates Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr., were assassinated by focusing on their legacy of nonviolence.
