Summary
Peace in Our Pockets follows the inspirational Kenyan activists of Sisi ni Amani as they promote civic engagement, build democracy, and defuse violence in the time leading up to the 2013 national elections in Kenya. With cutting-edge SMS text-messaging and grassroots organizing, the peacebuilders commit to transforming the very meaning of peace in their country. Following the 2007 national elections, Kenyan politicians used text messages to incite violence and exploit long-standing tribal tensions.. In response, thousands of activists across Kenya organized to counteract those who would tear their country apart. Sisi ni Amani (“We Are Peace” in Swahili) formed in 2009 to embrace the same technology in the pursuit of peace. Peace in Our Pockets explores the power of text messaging to educate, engage, and empower citizens and to promote good governance and community development in Nairobi’s informal settlements and communities across Kenya.
