Who We Are
Peace is Loud is a non-profit founded by filmmaker Abigail Disney that strengthens the visibility and influence of women who are building peace and resisting violence around the world. Through film impact campaigns, speaking events and political empowerment, we advance women’s leadership in building inclusive, secure communities.
This means we do a lot of things, and that’s because there is so much work to be done.

We’re a small, hardworking, hands-on team that draws our success from strong communication skills, teamwork, and a passion for our mission.
