Many groups nationwide are interested in a Department of Peace.
LWVUS-League of Women Voters US is one such group
Rabbi Michael Lerner and his magazine Tikkun speaks of it.
Rev. Jim Winkler of United Methodist Church in Church and Society speaks of it.
Many faith groups have signed onto the action to get a Department of Peace in the US.
H.R. 808 : A House Resolution: “The primary function of a United States Department of Peace will be to research, facilitate, and articulate nonviolent solutions to domestic and international conflict.”
It sounds like an idea whose time has come.
Will President Obama devote the money he won in the Nobel Peace Prize to starting this Department?
