Why not? We have a Department of Defense.

Charlottesville City Council meets at 7 p.m. on Monday March 17 and Monday April 7. On March 17 a group of local high school students will urge the City Council to pass a resolution in support of a bill in Congress to create a cabinet-level national Department of Peace. The resolution will be sponsored by Charlottesvile Mayor Dave Norris, who agreed to sponsor it at the request of Congressman Dennis Kucinich when he visited Charlottesville last December. The City Council will vote on the measure on April 7.
The Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice supports the creation of a Department of Peace and urges everyone interested to attend one or both of these upcoming City Council meetings. The meetings are held at 7 p.m. at City Hall. Information on the Department of Peace is available at: http://www.thepeacealliance.org
