Dennis Kucinich by The Peace Alliance
Former Congressman Dennis Kucinich was the guest on the national Peace Alliance Orientation call on Wed., January 8th.
The call has been archived and can be heard here.
The Congressman was the primary author and main champion of the bill to create a U.S. Department of Peace, beginning in July of 2001, two months before 9-11. He has reintroduced the bill in every Congressional session since then until he retired in 2012.
Kucinich gave a characteristically short but inspiring message, and answered several questions from listeners.
The Opednews article announcing the call, which includes additional information about the proposed Department of Peace, can be read here.
This monthly orientation call also included introductory background information about The Peace Alliance, and about Peace Alliance Action Teams.
Kucinich has been a repeat guest on Rob Kall's Bottom-Up radio show, and he continues to be a force for positive cultural change through his new organization, Kucinich Action, which supports candidates for public office at various levels -- from federal to local -- with the aim of having positive effects in areas such as peace, economics, healthcare, and the environment.
