Organize a Pints for Peace event

On Peace Day 2018, we hosted our first ‘Pints for Peace’ event in Washington D.C. We teamed up with a local craft brewery, welcoming local people to enjoy a local D.C. beer whilst hearing about our work and locally-led peacebuilding. Find out more by emailing [email protected]

Host a documentary screening

We’re teaming up with Peace is Loud, an initiative to inspire action through film campaigns that  spotlight women peacebuilders. In March 2019 we will host viewings of the latest documentaries in their series ‘Women, War, and Peace II’, and you can do the same!

From our supporters

 

‘It’s International Peace Day today! I have donated to an organisation which I am massively inspired by – Peace Direct. They support and train local people in war torn countries, in conflict resolution.

When local peace builders who understand the local issues, are supported in negotiating non-violent solutions with the militia, the results are incredible.’

-Vey Straker, Peace Direct supporter
