Morse High School Peace Day event with Ben & Jerry's in San Diego

Peace signs at the Ben & Jerry's table at Morse High School's Peace Day event

Over 500 Morse High School students were treated to FREE Ben & Jerry's ice cream on Tuesday, September 21st, the United Nations International Day of Peace as part of a nation-wide kickoff campaign in support of the Youth PROMISE Act. Ben & Jerry's supported The Peace Alliance and Student Peace Alliance at events in 8 cities around the country, including San Diego.

Sue Trisler from AFDOP addressed the students with the importance of the day and explaining what the Youth PROMISE Act is all about. The action item the students took at Morse and nearby Knox Preparatory School was writing a postcard to First Lady Michelle Obama with their own ideas as to how to reduce violence in their neighborhoods. Guest speaker Elder Glenn McKinney, Youth Pastor from St. Stephen's Cathedral, also talked with many students and encouraged them how they can create a culture of peace.

The favorite flavor of the day was "Imagine Whirled Peace," which included a caramel swirled ice cream with mini peace-symbol chocolate chips! A very special thanks to the staff at the Seaport Village Ben & Jerry's for supplying the ice cream for students, faculty and visitors.


Did you know that there is a Bill in Congress to establish a cabinet level U.S. Department of Peace?

House Bill is # H.R. 808
Under this Bill The Department of Peace would have jurisdiction both internationally and domestically:

Internationally ~ it would provide the President with specific, proven options for non-violent resolution of conflict and highly sophisticated peacemaking strategies for post-war stabilization.

Domestically ~ the Department of Peace would have jurisdiction to address national and local issues including: drug and gang violence, school bullying, prison reform and domestic abuse.

Government agencies currently addressing these problems are scattered among numerous departments. Under this Bill, all would be coordinated under one umbrella to increase efficiency and effectiveness (like Homeland Security).

The Department of Peace would establish a Peace Academy, patterned after the military academies, where students would learn peaceful conflict resolution skills and, after graduation, would serve in peace-related postings here at home or abroad.

Join Us in the Journey...
Together we can make a difference!
THE MOMENTUM IS BUILDING!
