What is the Department of Peace Campaign? - A Bill (HR 3760) and (S. 1756) to establish a U.S. cabinet-level Department of Peace (DOP) is currently in Congress. These Bills establish non-violence as an organizing principle of American society, providing the President with an array of peace-building policy options for domestic and international use. Domestically, the Department would be responsible for addressing gang and drug violence, child abuse, prison reform, domestic abuse and other issues of conflict. Internationally, the Department would gather research, analyze foreign policy and focus on non-military peaceful conflict resolution. The Bill would establish a Peace Academy modeled after the military academies that would train in conflict resolution and peace-building strategies.
