Women on the frontline of efforts to end violence and secure a just peace seldom record their experiences, activities and insights. The Program offers an opportunity for women leaders who want to document, share and build upon their unique peacemaking stories. The Program pairs each peacemaker with a Peace Writer and documentary film team to document her story. Selected candidates give presentations on their work both at the IPJ and in the San Diego community. There is no cost for participating in the Program and PeaceMakers receive a stipend during their residency.
