“PTSD Nation: Art and Poetry From Survivors of War, Gun Violence, and Domestic Abuse”

The California Brady Campaign Chapters are co-sponsoring a traveling art exhibit to provide public education about trauma and the adverse health effects—and the eventual hope and healing—that frequently follows exposure to trauma. The founder of this project, Diana Bilovsky, has a background in the arts and community organizing.  Diana has arranged for a two-year traveling art and poetry exhibit across the U.S.  Persons with PTSD acquired through war, gun violence (yourself or a loved-one), or domestic abuse are invited to submit Individual or collaborative works in any medium (sculpture, paint, mixed-media, photography), as well as poetry.

“PTSD Nation: Art and Poetry From Survivors of War, Gun Violence, and Domestic Abuse” 

(A TWO-YEAR TRAVELING EXHIBIT)

 Opening, November 3, 2014

The Annex Gallery, Sacramento State University

Closing,  March 2016

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, San Jose CA

CA Democratic Party Adopts Peacebuilding Platform

Dept Peace

PEACEBUILDING AT THE CA DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION IN LOS ANGELES

By Nancy Merritt, CA Peace Alliance

The California Democratic Party (CDP) adopted language by the California Peace Alliance calling for promotion of national institutions “based on the organizing principles of violence prevention and nonviolent conflict resolution, utilizing and developing a network of ‘best practice’ peacebuilding policies and programs, both within UN member states, and externally among nations.”

 We took our message of peacebuilding to the recent CDP convention in Los Angeles (March 7-9, 2014) and succeeded in getting new peacebuilding language into the 2014 CDP Platform, and in retaining most of our 2012 CDP Platform language.

We also collected letters to almost all of California’s Congressional delegation — to 51 of 53 CA Representatives — urging them to cosponsor Department of Peacebuilding legislation (DoP/ HR808), which was introduced by Congresswoman Barbara Lee (CA-13) in February 2013.
