Now's the time to fortify the small, local team that developed out of the workshop in October (and create some more?) who can move forward in each of the Districts.

Updates on how the Peace Alliance has been working across the country moving peacebuilding into the national conversation, especially concerning violence in our communities.

I hope you will take some time to consider if you would be interested in participating - in any small or large way - and join us for this informational session and workshop. NEW FOLKS WELCOME!

    Is war inevitable? Are there structures in our society that can help us avoid violence? Is this the first time a US Department of Peace has been proposed? What is it going to take to strike off the shackles of the belief that nothing can be done?

    Peace Alliance President, Bob Baskin, shares about why our work advocating for peacebuilding is so needed. We must shift from our punitive and military focused culture towards prevention and smart intervention.

    By specifically focusing on violence prevention and intervention strategies, this bill ensures we are funding programs that save lives and give every young person the opportunity to meet his or her potential. Imagine saving thousands of potential victims. Imagine giving every young person the opportunity to reach his or her potential. Imagine healthier families, safer communities, and stronger support for youth across the country.

    The Youth PROMISE Act (HR 1318, S. 1307) is bipartisan legislation that will give our communities the support and funding they need to effectively address youth violence issues by setting up local infrastructure to support effective on-the-ground work. The Act makes an unprecedented investment in evidence-based, locally run prevention & intervention practices that engage and divert at-risk youth proactively, before they slip into a costly cycle of delinquency, crime, violence and incarceration.

    Howard Zehr’s definition: Restorative justice is a process to involve, to the extent possible, those who have a stake in a specific offense and to collectively identify and address harms, needs and obligations, in order to heal and put things right as possible. The Little Book of Restorative Justice, 2002, p. 37 - See more at: http://peacealliance.org/issues-advocacy/restorative-justice/#sthash.lGFmi7Zi.dpuf

    Restorative justice emphasizes repairing the harm caused by crime. When victims, offenders and community members meet to decide how to do that, the results can be transformational.
