Build Peace


Host or Sponsor a Screening

Peace in Our Pockets shares a story of hope, highlights the need for citizens and elected leaders to focus on policy rather than divisive language, and offers a powerful example of how mobile phones and old school community organizing together can unite people around their shared hopes and dreams and promote development and prevent violence. The film is now streaming on Youtube and Vimeo.

We invite university instructors and students to watch the film here via Kanopy streaming.
