May 12 is National Action for a US Department of Peace

The Peace Alliance is organizing a National Action on May 12th (the Friday before Mother’s Day). The Action will gather citizens across the US to take pies to your their Congressional offices with a banner: “On behalf of Mothers Everywhere, Peace Wants a Piece of the Pie!” The action promotes a Department of Peace and Nonviolence Legislation. The action requests a small percent of the federal budget allocated directly toward funding projects that foster a culture of peace in our nation and around the world. To participate in this action, call your local newspapers and television stations and send them a press release. Ask them to come and take pictures of local teams delivering the pies with Department of Peace banners. Bring your children, along with pictures they’ve made that convey their message of peace, and make it a fun and festive event! This is a great way to get attention for a very important endeavor. Or host a Peace of the Pie House Party (and optional fundraiser) to spread the word. To learn more about this action visit www.thepeacealliance.org/action/mothers/pie.htm
