Dear Member of Congress,


I urge you to support the establishment of a United States Department of Peace.This legislation was re-introduced into the House of Representatives and introduced for the first time into the Senate this past September.The bill numbers are H.R. 3760 and S. 1756.I am requesting that you sign on as a co-sponsor if you have not already done so.


The primary function of a United States Department of Peace will be to research, articulate and facilitate nonviolent solutions to domestic and international conflict.


The Department of Peace will facilitate the most cutting edge ways to wage peace. From nonviolent communication skills, to conflict resolution techniques and cultural relationship building, the Department of Peace will employ proven and effective strategies for diminishing violence in our country and in our world. As a member of the Presidentís cabinet, the Secretary of Peace will provide the President; the State Department; the Departments of Defense, Education and Justice with greatly expanded problem solving options. The Department of Peace will also provide support for state and local government to address issues of domestic violence.


The time is now.Please support this effort.†††
