Dear Peacebuilders,

Advocacy Days in Washington DC
To participate in the Peace Alliance DoP Campaign Advocacy Days, Register here and see detailed flyer here . We will meet with Representatives and Senators to advocate for establishment of a cabinet-level Department of Peacebuilding and for other peace-related legislation.  This is an opportunity to work with like-minded peacebuilders and to experience walking the halls of Congress. Dialogue with legislators and aides, get an up-close feel for governance, and work to make peacebuilding a national priority.  We will provide training and attend Congressional meetings together.

Call from Home to AMPLIFY Our DC Peacebuilding Efforts
As part of Advocacy Days, for those who cannot go to Washington, DC, we are asking you to AMPLIFY our efforts by calling members of Congress while we are on Capitol Hill from September 24-26, 2018.  The call list includes:

1) your member of Congress;

2) former Department of Peacebuilding (DoP/ HR 1111) cosponsors who have not signed on yet; and

It isn’t enough to talk about peace.  One must believe in it. 
And it isn’t enough to believe in it.
One must work for it.
