Peace in our Pockets

Director: Kenny Dalsheimer | US/Kenya | 2015 | 55mins.
Website: peaceinourpockets.com

In the months before their 2013 election, Kenyans sent over 2 billion text messages. Would those messages be used to build or to burn? Peace in Our Pockets follows Kenyan activists as they work to strengthen civic engagement, build democracy, and defuse violence in the lead up to the 2013 national elections. With cutting-edge SMS text-messaging and grassroots organizing, the peacebuilders commit to transforming the very meaning of peace in their country. As Kenyans go to the polls and the votes are tallied, the activists send out hundreds of thousands of SMS. Yet they continue to look beyond the election cycle to the intersections of peace and democracy. As Mary says, “Peace is not achieved in one day. It is a journey.”
