Season for Nonviolence/ DoP Cosponsor Action

/
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.
