Americans For the Department of Peace
(“AFDOP”)

Our inspiration is:
“It is time that we become as sophisticated at waging peace as we have become at waging war.” Marrianne Williamson

Most Americans are surprised to learn that there is a Bill in Congress that would establish a cabinet-level “Department of Peace”. The Department of Peace would have jurisdiction internationally and domestically. Abroad, it would provide the President with a full array of options for non-violent resolution of conflict and highly sophisticated peacemaking strategies for post-war stabilization, such as those so sorely lacking in Iraq. Here in the U.S., the Department of Peace would have jurisdiction to address drug and gang violence, school bullying, prison reform and domestic abuse. Government agencies addressing these problems, currently scattered among various departments, would be coordinated under one umbrella to increase efficiency and effectiveness. Patterned after the military academies, the Department of Peace would establish a Peace Academy where students would learn peaceful conflict resolution skills and, after graduation, would serve in peace-related postings here at home or abroad. You can play an active role in turning the Department of Peace Bill into law.

AFDOP is a group of committed citizens who are taking action to facilitate the Department of Peace.

Our mission statement is:
To advocate passage of the federal Bill that is now in Congress to establish a cabinet-level Department of Peace, through citizen education, grassroots activism and spiritual commitment.

Our credo is:
"If you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in bed with a mosquito." Bette Reese
