Dear Friends,

Please join us November 5 - 7 in Berkeley, California for our "Peace is Possible" conference. We now have a historic opportunity to establish a U.S. Department of Peace.

The timing of this peace conference is significant - it is the weekend immediately after our national election. Regardless of what happens, this is a critical time to create a powerful grassroots citizen's peace campaign. Sessions will be held at the Martin Luther King Auditorium.

We aim to work collectively to help pass HR1673, the Department of Peace legislation pending in the U.S. House of Representatives. The purpose of this Cabinet-level department would be to research, facilitate and articulate nonviolent solutions to domestic and international conflicts.

The Department would provide the American President with a much needed compliment to a problem solving approach that focuses primarily with symptomatic rather than casual issues. By understanding and addressing the root causes of violence, we can predict and help nullify the myriad of hostilities threatening our stability; we can improve national security, help protect human rights and help de-escalate armed international conflict.

Not only will the Department of Peace represent strong governmental policy, but it will save the American taxpayer billions of dollars spent needlessly on war and unrest. The Department is an idea whose time has come, yet the idea will not become a legislative reality unless each of us does our part to show up and make it happen.

Be part of the solution, join us in Berkeley on Nov. 5th.

- Establish a U.S. Peace Academy as sophisticated and effective as the U.S. Military Academy.

- Learn how we can approach gang violence, racial and hate crimes, and even international conflicts with psychological and emotional powers as effective, and in many cases more so, than the application of brute force.

- Help move the American political dialogue to a higher level conversation regarding the realities of both war and peace.


We hope to see you there!

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 at it.
