PEACE IN OUR POCKETS is a feature documentary released in February 2015 to promote peace and development efforts worldwide. The film 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 community organizing together can unite people around their shared hopes and dreams and promote development and prevent violence.
The film follows the inspirational Kenyan activists of Sisi ni Amani as they promote civic engagement and defuse violence in the lead up to the 2013 national elections. With cutting-edge SMS text-messaging and grassroots organizing, the peacebuilders commit to transforming the very meaning of peace in their country.
