Department of Peace Conference
Washington
September 10-12, 2005

MPM will be participating in the Department of Peace Conference held in Washington D.C. this September.  Visionaries and politicians within the United States have coordinated their efforts for decades, to bring about a counterpart to the Department of Defense.  Rev. Michael will be attending the Conference, meeting with those men and women finalizing this project, as well as offering his services as a volunteer. One of the Conference’s major issues on the agenda is prison/prisoner reform, addressing the epidemic of addiction related crimes, and substance abuse.

Based on the last six years of experience, the Miracles Prisoner Ministry brings a unique, refreshing perspective regarding Peace within the corrections arena.  This perspective recognizes the need for change to begin with the individual, if there is to be any change at all.  In particular, it needs to be a change in the individual’s addictive thinking.  This must be a comprehensive project; in other words, programs of forgiveness, peaceful co-existence, self-responsibility, and Love need to be made available for staff as well as inmates.

Some of the topics to be covered:

  • To rehabilitate the prison population
     

  • Traditional political problem-solving focuses primarily on addressing symptoms of violence, such as imprisonment of offenders and engagement in armed conflict
     

  • Provide violence-prevention programs addressing domestic violence, gang violence, drug and alcohol-related violence, and the like
     

  • To effectively treat and dismantle gang psychology


Participate in an historic citizen lobbying effort to create a U.S. Department of Peace. This bill establishes nonviolence as an organizing principle of American society, providing the U.S. President with an array of peace-building policy options for domestic and international use.”
