We are concerned Americans from all walks of life who have come together in opposition to the dramatically increasing drive toward confrontation between the United States and China. We have launched a new effort called Pivot to Peace to educate and mobilize public opinion about the benefits of a policy that facilitates cooperation and mutual respect between the United States and China.
On November 1, President Joe Biden announced Kurt Campbell’s appointment as Deputy Secretary of State.

And the question is: will we look after the well-being of the Pacific Ocean?
