News, Updates & Upcoming Events

We have some big news to share. Late last week, President Obama signed an Executive Order to institutionalize the Atrocities Prevention Board. While this is less permanent than passing the Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act into law would be, it’s still a major accomplishment, strengthening early warning and response to mass atrocities and violent conflicts as a focus of US foreign policy.

Recently, the Senate unanimously passed S. 1635, the Department of State Authorization for 2016 containing a core part of the Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act (GAP Act), S. 2551, which is one of our top peacebuilding legislative priorities. The Senate is now back in session and we need you to call and write your Senators, urging them to go further by fully passing S. 2551, the GAP Act.

CA Dem party

The CA Peace Alliance/ Department of Peacebuilding campaign took our message of peacebuilding to the CA Democratic Party (CDP) for its statewide convention in San Jose, CA from February 26 – 28, 2016. The CA Peace Alliance’s focus was to infuse the platform and the elections with peacebuilding and to grow support for legislation to create a U.S. Department of Peacebuilding (DoP/ HR1111).

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.



2017 Federal Budget: Support Intl. Peacebuilding Funding — Sign Congressional Petition Today

FY-2017-funding_1200

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.

Genocide-bill-graphic_lg

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.
