Hi. This is yoko ono.

I fully support the idea of voting

for a DEPARTMENT OF PEACE.

It’s so exciting to see the family of peace

working to keep ourselves up in the top ten!

Every bit helps to make World Peace a reality.

I didn’t know that we are getting so strong in numbers, as well!

Lots of love, yoko

Contact Congress Today!

Please join our Mother’s Day action campaign by contacting your members of Congress TODAY. Youth from across the D.C. area will be descending upon Capitol Hill today urgeing support for the Youth PROMISE Act.  This bill will provide unprecedented aid to young people who are at-risk of becoming involved, or who are already involved in, gangs or the criminal justice system to redirect them toward productive alternatives.  Additionally, congressional offices across the country are being visited tomorrow, Friday, May 8th, by Peace Alliance activists, reminding them that Peace Wants a Piece of the Pie — that is the federal budget.  Specifically, we are asking Congress to support the Youth PROMISE Act and as always, the Dept. of Peace legislation. (It’s not too late to visit your own local office, even if just for a drop-by.)

Your action in support of these bills will only take a few minutes, but will significantly increase the impact of our visiting teams!

Cabinet department would give peace a chance – Kansas City Star

Barack Obama’s election as president has breathed life into efforts for a U.S. Department of Peace and Nonviolence.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich first proposed the Cabinet-level post in July 2001 — two months before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack. He had seen too much violence worldwide and wanted to create a platform in the executive branch to promote alternative ways to resolve conflicts.

Change.org – Number Two in the Top Ten!
Feb 05, 2009

To all of you who went to the contest at Change.org in December, and in round two in January — thank you! With all of your efforts, and by spreading the word through MySpace, FaceBook, and other methods, the idea garnered support even from Yoko Ono, who posted her support on her site. The goal was to make it into the top ten, and we made it to number two!

Here’s the link to the blog begun by Kathy Kidd of the National office of The Peace Alliance. Please feel free to add your comments!

More to come on this. Change.org has pledged to support our grass-roots efforts to bring this idea to fruition. Thanks to all of you who voted, and who spread the word!
