The Peace Foundation embarked upon this exciting project in 2013 and the campaign launch is taking place across Canada and being demonstrated at a special ceremony at the White House. The project created a set of films and educational resources and the Foundation worked in collaboration with the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) and filmmakers duckrabbit. The power of testimony in Foundation programs has long been present but the films are now providing the opportunity for these stories to be heard and experienced more widely. Put simply, the courage, candour, and honesty of people who helped us with the project such as Christianne and Daniel will help to reach audiences that may never have been reached before. Their personal experiences and stories will provide a lens for the young audiences that may otherwise be unavailable. Their steps in engaging with this project have set a standard and will hopefully encourage others to follow because if we are to truly meet groups like the so-called 'Islamic State' head on - we have to occupy the online space too and make sure that the voices of those who really know are heard as loudly.
