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 CA, folks from Oakland, Marin/ Sonoma and San Diego attended 10 Mother’s Day ‘pie’ meetings. Photo #1 is at the office of Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-13), sponsor of the Department of Peacebuilding legislation. Photo #2 is at the office of Sen. Kamala Harris (CA) in San Diego. Photo #3 is at the office of Rep. Scott Peters (CA-52). Photo #4 is at the office of Rep. Susan Davis (CA-53), a DoP cosponsor.
