Peace is Loud was founded in 2013 by Abigail E. Disney. Born out of work on her first film, Pray the Devil Back to Hell, its mission was to expand visibility and capacity for women social justice leaders around the world. You can read more about our origins in a blog post here

Today, Peace is Loud is a 501c3 non-profit that drives people-powered change by using storytelling and documentary film to build grassroots organizing power. Through our Film Impact Campaigns and Speakers Bureau, we use stories to connect people with tools for action, and strengthen the influence of women-identified and gender-expansive storytellers. 

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

By recognizing and embodying the values of solidarity, intersectional feminism, equity, adaptability and transparency, we aim to uphold and work towards a culture of peace, love and justice, both within our workplace and through our work extending to the outside world.


Peace is Loud is entering a key moment of growth, and we are hiring a Development and Communications Lead to creatively connect the dots between programming, communications, and fundraising. 

We have imagined this as a single full time position; however, we are open to job sharing and encourage applications from individuals who would like to share the work and compensation between them. 

The successful candidate(s) will play a key role in Peace is Loud’s fundraising and communications efforts, with a focus on applying organizational messaging and creating compelling copy for digital fundraising work. 

They will be tasked with developing and leading a strategic communications plan to elevate the awareness and perception of Peace is Loud within the philanthropic community and heighten online donor experience and retention. The ideal candidate(s) will combine strong writing and creative skills with excellent project management and organizational skills.

About you: 

  • A solid storyteller, you can turn program outcomes, data and testimonials into a compelling narrative that gets donors excited about the work. 
  • A great people manager, preferring mentorship and coaching, proactive communication and collaboration over micro-managing. 
  • Comfortable working in a collaborative environment and being the hub of the organization. You will work closely with program teams, other development staff and co-EDs.

  • A clear and demonstrated passion for social, racial and economic justice.

  • Experience in the documentary film industry is a bonus

Below we’ve listed some of the responsibilities of the role. While we hope to find a candidate who is skilled in Communications and Development, we don’t expect any candidate to be an expert in every area listed. A college degree is not required to apply; we welcome both traditional and non-traditional experience.
