This timely legislation would require the US government – in collaboration with global civil society – to develop a 10-year strategy to bring down current levels of global violence and better address the causes of violence that drive violent conflict and fragility. The bill aims to use US foreign policy to support organizations like MBBI in our missions to reduce violence and build peace worldwide. We also hope it serves as an example for other national and global frameworks.
If you have a chance this week, join us in calling and mailing our representatives in order to help create a more “peace”able world 🌎

Panel facilitates cross-learning among organizations engaged in creatively leveraging a variety of media and technologies to advance advocacy, capacity, peace. Employing everything from digital media storytelling to WhatsApp groups, radio broadcasting, and online virtual conferences, women are creatively using media and innovation to confront structural inequality and instead build movements which strengthen our social fabric.
Increased connectivity presents an opportunity to extend beyond geographic and social barriers to include historically marginalized and rural voices. Creative technological strategies pose an affront to the phenomenon of shrinking civil space and provide inclusive collaborative opportunities to advance the women’s agenda.
Panelists include: Sharon Bhagwan Rolls, Executive Producer-Director for FemLINKpacific and Board Co-chair for Global Fund for Women, Vanessa Stone, Founder of the Amala Foundation and Institute for Emerging Visionaries, Prabha Sankaranarayan, CEO and Founding Member of Mediators Beyond Borders International, and Lina Abou Habib, Executive Director of WLP, Trish Tierney of WAKE, and Jelena Pia-Comella from the World Federalist Movement.

MBBI’s Sierra Leone Project Team, along with international and local partners, implemented four workshops on Building Unity for Peaceful Elections Dialogue and Conflict Transformation. Workshops were designed to: teach basic conflict resolution skills, build understanding and common ground among diverse stakeholders, and increase the number of peace ambassadors throughout civil society. As a result, 300 peace ambassadors have been spreading the word of nonviolence and tolerance for peaceful elections. The elections take place today!!
