Peace is Loud collaborates with women-identified and gender expansive changemakers to advance transformative peace and social justice through storytelling.

Peace is Loud is situated within Fork Office, which is home to a group of social change and peacebuilding organizations, including the nonfiction media company Fork Films and the Daphne Foundation. Fork Office provides support to all organizations in the areas of human resources, fundraising, technology systems, communications, and facilities to support in their delivering on their missions and visions. 

To us, peace doesn’t mean “Mission Accomplished.” It’s not a state of tranquility achieved through the absence of violence. It’s “Let’s Get to Work!” Because when has change ever come from being quiet and idle? Storytelling plays an influential role in how power is created, accessed, and utilized. Long-term transformation requires building power at multiple levels, and within the ecosystem of global and local movement-based work. We leverage the power of storytelling to create a future where all people live in a just safe world with equity and dignity.

As a nonprofit/NGO based in the U.S. we must fundamentally change harmful, dominant culture and narratives shaped by white supremacy and patriarchy.

To achieve our mission and vision we work through three interconnected approaches grounded in the power of storytelling, and we accompany women-identified and gender expansive movement leaders in building intersectional collective power:

  1. STORY-BASED CAMPAIGNS: Our impact campaigns help movements use documentary films as tools to build power and capacity. We partner with women-identified and gender expansive filmmakers and organizers across physical and digital spaces to facilitate screenings, create educational resources, grow digital audiences, and build coalitions around the globe.
  2. AMPLIFICATION & ADVOCACY: Our Speakers Bureau advocates for meaningful and equitable representation and compensation for women-identified and gender expansive movement leaders in the public and private spheres. We create connections between these leaders across various movements and audiences around the globe.
  3. LEARNING & TRAINING:  We share our campaign learnings, skills, and resources with filmmakers and other impact producers in workshops and trainings, as part of our commitment to strengthening the storytelling for social change community.
