Florida Regional Conference
July 18-20, 2008
================================
Dear Companions in Peace,
Thank you so much for all you do and the many ways that you contribute to a more peaceful world.  It strengthens me personally to know that we share a vision for peace in our time and that together, we put our hope into action.    We are living in very exciting times…and we at The Peace Alliance know you will agree that Florida is once again in a unique position to really make a difference in this election campaign.
Because so much will be invested in the outcome of how Florida votes, each candidate will undoubtedly be spending considerable time here.  This is our opportunity to educate, enlighten, inspire and engage not only our fellow Floridians but the candidates themselves regarding the Department of Peace and Nonviolence legislation.   We can be at every venue that candidates appear and our presence will enliven not only the conversation and visibility, but our own personal sense of accomplishment and inspiration!
We feel fortunate that the weekend of July 18 -20 has been set to have our Florida State Department of Peace Conference in Cleremont, Florida, just outside of Orlando.   This affords us the perfect opportunity to come together and create a master plan for this campaign season.   Our State Conferences are great  at building community, deepening our understanding of the legislation, honing our own peacebuilding skills, strategizing for coming events, learning from one another’s experiences and celebrating ourselves and each other for our commitment to a safe, peaceful and loving world.   We hope to see some of you from the Keys to Pensacola and everywhere in between!
Please join us for this special weekend where we will be featuring Lynn McMullen, the National Department of Peace Campaign Consultant.  For those of you that have met Lynn, you know just what a treasure she is to all of us.    The Registration Flyer follows and please RSVP as quickly as possible because space is limited!!!
With Much Gratitude For You,
Heart Phoenix

Ben & Jerry’s Names SPA Exec Director "Peace Pioneer;" SPA Reaches 100 Chapters 
Aaron Voldman Named Ben & Jerry’s Peace Pioneer
SPA Celebrates 100-Chapter Mark
May 27, 2008 
Dear james m,
We are so proud and excited to share this news! Ben & Jerry’s, the Vermont-based socially conscious ice-cream maker, announced today at its New York City Times Square Scoop Shop that Aaron Voldman, Executive Director of the Student Peace Alliance (SPA) and Board Member of The Peace Alliance, is one of two nationwide winners of its "Peace Pioneer" contest.
The ceremony was part of Ben & Jerry’s joint effort with The Lennon Estate and Peace One Day, a nonprofit global peace organization, to encourage people to work for peace every day.
Award-winning actress Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s, presented Aaron and fellow Peace Pioneer, Robert Kent of the Peace Camp Initiative with donations of $10,000 each for their respective organizations.
The $10,000 contribution in support of Student Peace Alliance will be donated on a tax-deductible basis to Peace Partnership International and restricted for use by Student Peace Alliance in building youth leadership for peace.
Powerful Recognition
This recognition of the significance of our work is one of the most public and mainstream acknowledgments we’ve received to date. Congratulations to you and everyone in the campaign for, as Aaron put it in his acceptance remarks, helping "… build this movement to make peace as American as ice cream and apple pie."
More information about the award and the events in New York City is available on the SPA website. Check back frequently as we’ll add links to press coverage and video of the event as we receive it.
100-Chapter Mark Reached
And the good news just keeps coming! We’re also pleased to announce that SPA has grown to include 100 high school and college chapters in over 30 states. All this just since its founding in March 2006! An updated list of active chapters can be downloaded on the SPA website.
Help Celebrate and Keep SPA Growing
In celebration of Aaron’s recognition and SPA reaching 100 chapters, we invite you to donate to Student Peace Alliance and invest in the future of peace that Aaron and all of us are working to create. If just 100 people give $100 each we can match the donation made by Ben & Jerry’s!  Donations of $100, $50, $25 or $10 a month will go a long way in helping us support and expand the work being done by SPA all across the nation.
Please take a moment and donate to SPA today!
Your continued support will allow SPA, The Peace Alliance and all of us in the Department of Peace Campaign to keep the successes rolling!
Thank you again for joining us and Ben & Jerry’s in helping make true and lasting peace a reality. Or, as Ben & Jerry’s might say, for having the courage to "Imagine Whirled Peace" (one of their newest flavors!). Together we are making a world of difference.
In gratitude and partnership,
Julia Simon-Mishel
Managing Director
Student Peace Alliance
 
 Wendy Greene
