The Peace Alliance is committed to growing a movement of a million strong for peace. Together, we will create a critical mass necessary for peacebuilding to be our societal norm. We can make it happen!
We are a grassroots educational and advocacy organization focused on transforming how individuals, communities, and nations respond to conflict and violence. The prevention and intervention solutions we promote have proven effective in saving lives and dollars while enhancing cooperation skills and increasing social resilience.
Every year, peace supporters across the nation take pies to their local Congressional offices with a message that “peace deserves a piece of the pie.” We are talking of course about peace and the work of peacebuilding being made a budget and policy priority. It’s always a fun and connecting activity, and we’ve found it to be very effective.
Despite starting out with major bipartisan momentum, the Sentencing Reform and CORRECTIONS Act, S. 2123, has still not been brought up for a vote. This is the closest we've come to major reform of mandatory minimums in decades, and we can't let this chance escape us.
Right now, Committees in the House and Senate are starting to draft the 2017 Budget. At this early stage of the process, few things are decided and we have a much greater opportunity to influence. But that means that we have to act right now to make sure important Peacebuilding programs will be fully funded in 2017. In the 2016 Budget, several peacebuilding programs were cut, so we need your voice now.
we are happy to share that we are a promotional sponsor of a powerful new Community Peacebuilder Two-Week Residential Immersion Training being put on by the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding in Gainesville, Florida. They are already effectively implementing & modeling, on the ground, much of what we've been advocating for years at The Peace Alliance. It's truly remarkable work. This training will take place May 6-14 and October 14-22, 2016. You can learn much more about the work of the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding (RPCP), and this intensive on our special national conference call this Thursday evening.
The Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act, S.2551, was finally introduced in the Senate just a few days ago. This is an important bill that we all need to get behind. The Act will coordinate an interagency approach to preventing mass atrocities, integrate early warning systems, oversee development and implementation of atrocities prevention strategies, and conduct atrocities specific planning.

In 2015, Department of Peacebuilding (DoP) supporters worked with DoP legislation sponsor, Congresswoman Barbara Lee on incorporating evolving peacebuilding practices into the Department of Peacebuilding Act of 2015, which was introduced on 2/26/15 as H.R. 1111. Throughout the year, we made hundreds of contacts with members of Congress urging them to cosponsor DoP legislation and to support other peacebuilding initiatives.
