To: President Donald Trump and The United States House of Representatives

Create a Department of Peace

Should our government spend over half of our taxes on war and the military and less than 5% on the Department of State and other peaceful programs? If you would like to see your taxes spent on a Department of Peace, tell your Congressional representatives to support HR 1111, the bill to establish a Department of Peace, with a cabinet level Secretary of Peace.

Why is this important?

This petition is an effort to turn our nation away from its path of perpetual war and toward other options for conflict resolution. It is also a response to the increased level of violence in our own communities, schools, and prisons. I often feel personally powerless to affect change in these trends toward greater violence, but this bill gives me hope for a voice of peace in Washington.
