Coast-to-Coast Peace Pie Deliveries Celebrate Mother’s Day
Department of Peace supporters across the country honored Mother’s Day on Friday by delivering homemade “peace” pies to the local offices of their U.S. representatives and senators, urging support for landmark legislation to create a U.S. Department of Peace and Nonviolence.
This is the fourth year the event has been sponsored by The Peace Alliance, the nonprofit, nonpartisan, organization that leads the growing grassroots movement to create a U.S. Department of Peace.
In addition to the national grassroots peace pies, the Peace Alliance delivered 435 pies at the nation’s Capitol, one to each member of the House of Representatives.
The pies, representing the federal budget, all had a tiny slice cut out to show how little money is needed—less than 1% of the federal discretionary budget—to create the Department.
