P.E.A.C.E is an Activist Organization.
We act on public issues related to our purposes, to help young children grow up in a peaceful family, school, community, country and world. Peace starts within each of us, then in our immediate contacts, including the children and families with whom we work, and only then with our neighborhoods, communities, and wider jurisdictions.
Action Alerts! August 2021
Please Get Vaccinated!
It’s good for your health, it’s good for the health of the children in your care, and it’s good for their families too. The more eligible people we can get vaccinated, the easier it will be for life to return to normal for all of us.

Help Parents Get Their Advance Child Tax Credits
Earlier this year Congress passed a law to give parents a tax credit for each dependent child this year. The amount is substantial, and it can be used for child care expenses. But many parents, especially those who don’t make enough to have filed Federal Income Tax returns for 2020, will not get these payments automatically, or will need to apply to get the payments. You can refer them to the IRS website.
CHILD CARE URGENT ACTION NEEDED!
The U.S. Senate is on the verge of acting this week on the President’s Infrastructure Plan and a Budget Reconciliation Bill that would enact much of what the President asked for in the American Families Plan to help child care. In view of this timing, we need you to call your Senators’ offices at (202) 224-3121, to urge them to rebuild child care following the disastrous pandemic. We need a high quality system to help parents work, children thrive, child care programs avoid bankruptcy, and child care workers stay off welfare. You can use the same number to contact your Representative’s office. Find more of the specifics of what’s being asked for...

P.E.A.C.E. has an action arm, a list serve called Actforpeace, which alerts its members by email to opportunities for public policy actions to help children (and their parents and teachers) survive and thrive in a more peaceful, healthier world. The messages mostly relate to the action agenda items described below. Any participant in the list serve can initiate messages, and they come maybe 5-10 times a month. To join the list serve, send a message to email@example.com, asking to be invited to join.
