From Bobbi Jo:
Since I joined the campaign for a US Dept of Peacebuilding in 2006, our area has seen some incredible progressive movement in terms of congressional representation and we are closer than ever before to having some support for HR 808 and a smaller-focused, yet powerful Youth Promise Act (YPA). Actually, Dr. Raul Ruiz, U.S. Representative (Palm Springs) has already signed on to the YPA.
But, I have yet to shift gears back into the campaign and actually do the little bit of work towards engaging our Congressional folks and asking for their support.
This is where you come in. I think the time has come to build small, local teams who can move forward in each of the Districts.
And, now we have the opportunity to connect with Dan Kahn, the national field director of the campaign, to see how the Peace Alliance has been working across the country moving peacebuilding into the national conversation, especially concerning violence in our communities.
I hope you will take some time to consider if you would be interested in participating - in any small or large way - and join us for this informational session and workshop.
If you have any questions or ideas, please feel free to contact me in whatever manner -- text, email, phone. I look forward to seeing and connecting with you again, my friends!
