In 2018, Peace Alliance/ Department of Peacebuilding volunteers celebrated Mother’s Day – which was originally a call for a day of peace -- by taking pies to the offices of legislators and delivering the message that “Peace wants a piece of the federal budget pie.”  Advocates promoted establishment of a cabinet level Department of Peacebuilding and other peace-related legislation and initiatives.

In New Mexico, at least two different groups met with legislators, including two New Mexico Representatives and the two New Mexico Senators.  Photo #1 is at the office of Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM-1).  Photo #2 is of Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (NM-3).  

In South Dakota, Pax Christi members took pies to the offices of both SD Senators.  Photo #3 is at the office of Sen. John Thune. (SD).

For more about the flavors of the pie meetings, see  Mother’s Day 2018 Call for Peace & CA, CO, GA Photos. See also  Mother’s Day Peace 2018 – More No. CA & So. CA Photos

Thank you to all who participated.  Pie on.
