Our Senior Specialist, Achol Jok Mach, wrote a fantastic article about the Lab's Countering Hate Action Network (CHAN) program in Peace Science Digest! Read about how we contextualize tech tools, such as our Hate Speech Lexicons, to counter hate around the world and an analysis on the role of NGOs and social movements in countering violent extremism and radicalization.

We are honored to announce our first 2022 International Peace Honors' inspiring honoree, Forest Whitaker. An #artist by trade and a #humanitarian by #heart, this Oscar winner has done much as a filmmaker and producer to shine a light on social issues, diversity and inclusivity. Yet, his greatest actions perhaps come from his engagement for peace away from the limelight, through empowering young women and men from communities touched by violence and armed conflict, through his organization Whitaker Peace & Development Initiative.

One of the greatest global threats we face today is the pandemic of #misinformation. Its effects are devastating in many seemingly unrelated ways. Oftentimes, the scope of the problem is compounded by the actions of well-meaning citizens. PeaceTech Lab is thrilled to have both Damaso Reyes and Ebonee Rice join us today as part of Day 2 of the #RoadtoEqualJustice in #WashingtonDC. Together, they addressed the educational tools available to the public to teach and share the skills needed to navigate the news and information environment as smart, engaged, and active participants in a healthy democracy. For information and to register for future events, go to www.rtej.org!

There is no easy solution when it comes to prison reform, something Emily Tatro, the Deputy Director at Council for Court Excellence knows all too well. When a proposal for a new Washington D.C. correctional facility was released a few years ago, it stirred up a lot of opinions, suggestions and controversy from criminal justice experts and activists as well as from the greater D.C. community.
Ms. Tatro was part of the task force convened by the city in 2019 - composed of experts, scholars, community organizers and those whose lives have been directly touched by incarceration - to research, analyze and weigh all the available data and come up with the most effective way to move forward. The report, released earlier this year, is a testament to the importance and effectiveness of gathering and analyzing all available data, from all available sources, especially when it comes to issues of social justice and reform.
PeaceTech Lab is thrilled to have Ms. Tatro as one of our featured speakers when the Road to Equal Justice comes to Washington D.C. on October 12th and 13th! Register now at www.rtej.org/washington-dc to be a part of this free, virtual event.

Data Informed Societies Achieving Sustainability Tasks for the Global Scientific Engineering and Medical Communities A Virtual Workshop | National Academies

PeaceTech Lab's Sheldon Himelfarb featured as a panelist discussing COVID-19, Big Data, and Digitalization for a two-day virtual workshop with National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, from September 9-10th. The workshop explored how the global scientific, engineering, and medical communities can better facilitate the effective use of data to advance sustainability, and addressed disparities in the ability of societies to utilize data. Alongside Mr. Himelfarb were participants from governments, the private sector, academia, and nongovernmental and international organizations. A video of the sessions will be posted on the project website later this month (linked below)!

In 2020, PeaceTech Lab started The Road to Equal Justice with Opal Tometi, co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter, with the goal to empower social justice organizations in U.S. cities with media, data, and technology tools and strategies. So far workshops have been held across #Baltimore, #Denver, #Boston, #Miami, and #NewOrleans and all have been held virtually so far. #TheRoadToEqualJustice will start in-person training beginning with Washington D.C. in October before embarking on a large multiple city tour in 2022!

Steps to Protect Your Online Identity from the Taliban: Digital History and Evading Biometrics Abuses

An amazing resource from Human Rights First to help those in Afghanistan. As the Taliban may have gained more access to biometric databases, information, and equipment, protecting online identities is more important than ever. You too can help others evade the misuse of biometric data by sharing resources such as this!

Evading the Misuse of Biometric Data We understand that the Taliban is now likely to have access to various biometric databases and equipment in Afghanistan, including some left behind by coalition military forces. This technology is likely to include access to a database with fingerprints and iris....

Everyone has the Power of Peacetech.

We believe everyone has the power of peacetech so we leverage low-cost, easy-to-use tech and local partnerships to put the right tools in the hands of the people best positioned to make a difference: activists, peacebuilders, and NGOs in some of the most violent places on earth.

Our work takes many forms. From our headquarters in Washington D.C., we run a PeaceTech Accelerator for startups using technological innovation to do everything from connecting at-risk youth across Africa with jobs to warning civilians in Syria of incoming missile attacks. In places like India, Kenya, Iraq, Myanmar, Costa Rica, and Nigeria, our PeaceTech Exchanges offer training and affordable tech tools to peacebuilders in communities around the world. And on the data front, our research around issues like social media and hate speech serve to inform policymakers, data scientists, activists, and business leaders while also providing a foundation for predictive analytics and a proprietary platform for early warning of violence. We partnered with Drexel University to launch the U.S.’s first Master’s Degree in Peace Engineering to educate generation after generation on the power of peacetech.

Fantsuam Foundation has been working on hate speech prevention with a group of youths, teachers and parents in Kafanchan. The teams have produced some awareness-raising videos and fotos
The 26-year-old Oslo disaster should have taught those who started the process a lesson or two about proper leadership. It should have taught the Palestinian people that they should stand up in defence of their inalienable rights in their country, Palestine. Neither have learned their lessons.
