The Department of Peace

In September of 2005, a landmark Bill to establish a cabinet level Department of Peace was re-introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives (H.R. 3760) and introduced for the first time into the U.S. Senate (S.1756). 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 employ proven and effective strategies for reducing violence in our country and around the world, including nonviolent communication skills, conflict resolution techniques, and cultural relationship building.
