‘I contribute to peace,’ a pledge to end hostilities inside and out

by King William Brown, United KAGE Brothers, and Jesse Perez, Prisoners PAC

“I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings.” – Psalms 119:46

Until-all-are-free-we-are-all-imprisoned-Black-Brown-fists-barbed-wire-cuffed-228x300, ‘I contribute to peace,’ a pledge to end hostilities inside and out, Abolition Now! We, under the union of the United KAGE Brothers, joined with the Prisoners Political Action Committee (PAC), welcome you to our communion. We aim to unite and unionize internationally the peace movement – under the Agreement to End Hostilities – as an ad campaign from prison to the street.

As people of all colors, races, creeds, genders and sexualities, we stand in solidarity with the following pledge:

Contribution to Peace

I contribute to peace when I strive to express the best of myself in my contacts with others.

I contribute to peace when I use my intelligence and my abilities to serve the good.

I contribute to peace when I feel compassion toward all those who suffer.

I contribute to peace when I look upon all as my brothers and sisters regardless of race, culture or religion.

I contribute to peace when I rejoice over the happiness of others and pray for their well-being.

I contribute to peace when I listen with tolerance to opinions that differ from mine or even oppose them.

I contribute to peace when I resort to dialogue rather than force to settle any conflict.

I contribute to peace when I respect nature and preserve it for generations to come.

I contribute to peace when I do not seek to impose my conception of God upon others.

I contribute to peace when I make peace the foundation of my ideals and philosophy.

The Cesar Chavez Peace Plan

The National Coalition of Barrios Unidos Summit in San Antonio, Texas, produced the Cesar Chavez Peace Plan in April 1996. It has become the central organizing vehicle for the Barrios Unidos Movement.

  1. Development of community peace agreements or truces.
  2. Implementation of a viable violence-prevention model.
  3. Creation of “barrio enterprise zones” for youth-centered economic development.
  4. Public policies to create alternatives to incarceration and the root causes of youth violence and police brutality.
  5. Organization mobilization of a youth-centered network to access resources for violence prevention.
