PEACE/NONVIOLENCE HISTORY & TERRI MANSFIELD
From the time she was a little girl, Terri shied away from conflict, embraced peace and love.
Terri was the volunteer co-founderand executive director of the proactive, inclusive and transpartisan Arizona Department of Peace Campaign, from 2003-2009, which supported the creation of a Cabinet level Department of Peace in Washington, DC which would serve as an umbrella to support nonprofits already working to end violence in our communities. Marianne Williamson began this extraordinary campaign on the national level.
The history of the Department of Peace movement in our country goes back to 1773, when George Washington’s colleague Dr. Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of the Independence, called for a new Department of Peace in our country. Over the years, many bills have been introduced into Congress, supported by both Democrats and Republicans. The current version of the bill was originally introduced by former Congressional Representative Dennis Kucinich on July 11, 2003, TWO months before 9-11.
In Terri’s peace work, she was blessed to participate in profound activities including:
- Leading volunteers to DC for Dept. of Peace conferences in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009 plus one to Berkeley in 2004
- Walking with the Japanese monks to extinguish the Atomic Flame at Trinity Test site, NM, 60 years after Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
- Co-founding Voices for Civil Dialogue to talk with people on both sides of the immigration aisle
- Working together with the Arizona Interfaith Movement to bring Prayers for Peace, A Hug for the Capitol to the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix, with hundreds of participants
- Hosting monthly AZ Dept. of Peace meetings for 6 years, bringing informative and sometimes controversial speakers to the table
- Working with bipartisan Arizona Legislators for 4 years to introduce a bill supporting the creation of a Cabinet level Department of Peace
- Organizing annual International Day of Peace events on Sept. 21
- Serving on the Phoenix Human Relations’ Commission and educating her colleagues and all citizens about the benefits of a Department of Peace
- Dedicating Peace Poles, and seeing one in the Pentagon (Peace Poles are 8 feet tall, and say May Peace Prevail On Earth in over 300 languages. Anyone can make or buy one; they are all over the world, including the one which Terri’s family bought after 9-11, in their home. Peace Poles are on university campuses, in churches, schools, parks, Town Halls, Montessori schools. Terri’s AZDOP group donated one to the City of Phoenix. She saw her first Peace Pole in Hanalei, Kauai in January 1997.)
