WHAT WE DO
We leverage insights from research and practice to understand the relationship between communication and violence. We use this knowledge to build an active peace.
...support organizations, leaders, and initiatives to be as effective as possible through training and strategic advising. Our trainings and design tools offer new skills and approaches to creating effective and research-informed programming. Our strategic advising provides critical insights to high impact initiatives. We offer this support to a diverse set of partners, including civil society leaders and organizations, funders and large institutions, and leaders within society.
...incubate new initiatives. Through sustained engagement in specific communities, we seed new approaches to address critical challenges by bringing together local actors and interdisciplinary experts to design, implement, and test interventions.
...advance the field. Over Zero advances the field of identity-based violence prevention by translating, connecting, and sharing learnings that span sectors, disciplines, and geographies. Through thought leadership, speaking engagements, and convening leaders across academia, civil society, and public policy, we break down existing silos and push forward our collective understanding of how communication is weaponized for violence and can instead be used to create an active peace.
