Peace Direct is proud to announce the first ‘Peace Cries Out’ event to celebrate inspiring contributions to youth peacebuilding on November 17th, 6-7pm EST. Special guests include Representative Grace Meng (NY) and nationally acclaimed slam poet Charity Joyce Blackwell, as well as youth peacebuilding leaders from around the world.
On April 11, President al-Bashir of Sudan has stepped down, following months of protests. We witnessed the power of civil society to lead a non-violent movement creating real change. We spoke to our local peacebuilding partner, Rasha Ahmed of Collaborative for Peace Sudan (CfPS), about what the overthrow of Bashir might mean for prospects of peace in the country.
Violence across Sudan has spanned more than two decades. Rasha works for local organisation, Collaborative for Peace Sudan (CfPS) based in the turbulent region of South and West Kordofan. We support CfPS to respond to outbreaks of violence and mediate conflict peacefully, through locally-led Peace Committees.
