Share Your Story!
Please share your story as a Face of Peace. No matter how large or small your commitment to peace is — whether you work as a peacebuilder in your community in a violence prevention program or organization or a practice or commitment for peace — the more our stories are seen and heard, the more we will help create greater public understanding of what peace can look like. The path to creating a more peaceful world is paved with the unsung work and commitment of peacebuilders. Please be a part of showing the world what peace can look like so we can continue to grow our investment in the work and help spotlight peace practices.
Faces of Peace Story Tips:
A good idea to keep the stories fairly brief, maybe 2 or 3 paragraphs highlighting who you are, what you do, what impact it makes, and other information about your work, commitment and practices and how it builds peace, whether in your own life or in the world.
Here is a sample story that would be a good template to use as far as length and content for the story: Of course, this is your story, and we do not want this to be a limit, only a guideline, feel free to say what you believe needs to be said about how you are the face of peace.
Also a nice idea to create a tag line to use so that can be an intro and draw people into your story better. Juan Pacheco’s example: “My name is Juan Pacheco, I used to be a gang member, now I work with at risk youth, helping them transform their lives. I am the Face of Peace”
A good format could be. My name is [name], [this is the work/practice I do], [it has this impact], I am the Face of Peace.
Please also include any resources or links to your work/practice, to videos, anything you think a reader would enjoy and to learn more.
PHOTOS: Finally, we would love to have a good picture of you so that we can use your face in our project, here are the recommended specs:
