By specifically focusing on innovative, evidence-based 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.
The Act will help engage and divert at-risk youth proactively -- before they slip into cycles of violence, incarceration and despair.
Tell your Members of the House of Representatives & Senate that you want them to sign on as a co-sponsor of recently reintroduced legislation to establish a U.S. Dept. of Peacebuilding (H.R. 808). Domestically, the Department of Peacebuilding will develop policies and allocate resources to effectively reduce the levels of domestic and gang violence, child abuse, and various other forms of societal discord. Internationally, the Department will advise the President and Congress on the most sophisticated ideas and techniques regarding peace-creation among nations.
