Before his passing, Walter Cronkite said about the legislation and our work: “It’s not just a matter of getting another Department in government; you are speaking of an entire philosophical revolution... This is a great start.” It may take awhile to enact, but your support will advance the organizing principles and vision within the legislation, making them a priority and helping us continue to implement policies and legislation that will move us toward this powerful vision of a peaceful world.
Violence is costly. A recent report from the Institute for Economics and Peace estimates that in the U.S., Violence Containment costs around 15% of Gross Domestic Product each year and is the largest discrete industry, costing around $2.16 trillion dollars. Violence cuts across age, gender, ethnicity, religion, nationality. Responding to conflict with violence is a learned response, as is nonviolence and learning far more effective conflict resolution techniques.
