Digital Peace Factory

The Toda Peace Institute is hosting a contest to generate peace memes, GIFs and short videos that inspire Americans to respect the basic human dignity of all people in conversations about politics on social media during October and November 2020. The contest invites Americans to generate fun, inspiring content to help people listen to each other, to find common ground, to ask questions of others, and to encourage mindful, calm conversations in these anxious times. This nonpartisan contest will take place the month before and after election day in the US.

The Digital Peace Factory US contest is running on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. Our YouTube channel is here, and includes a 3 minute video explaining the contest.

For questions, email DigitalPeaceFactoryUS@gmail.com.

The contest is organized by Lisa Schirch, Senior Research Fellow at the Toda Peace Institute.

Co-Sponsors of the contest include:
