Great meeting in Gulu
At each of the 24 seminar sites, we're holding a separate meeting with community leaders. We want to enlist their help as advocates of peace journalism, so we are asking them to connect with and monitor their local radio stations to ensure that the stations are not engaged in hateful, violence-inducing speech. The peace activists at the meeting last night were great--energetic, engaged, and ready to unite to ensure harmony in the Gulu region. If the other meetings are this good, I really believe a peaceful election may be possible here.

Peace Journalism radio program
I have posted a program where I discuss the peace journalism project and a recently concluded peace journalism seminar. My two Park students also made a few brief comments. This program was broadcast live last week on Life FM in Fort Portal, in Western Uganda. Go to:
