2004 : USA - The Power and Promise of Peace

The World Council of Churches (WCC) Central Committee has designated the United States as its 2004 focus during the Decade to Overcome Violence (DOV) (2001-2010).

The DOV's US focus will aim at strengthening and resourcing churches and movements working for peace in the USA, encouraging a commitment to mutual accountability, and deepening the churches' understanding of issues such as power, militarism, and community-building.
