Enjoy eight short films by and about women while supporting the Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute (“Peacebuilding"). Our goal is to serve 5% of Minnesotans by 2030. Together we are making Minnesota the peacebuilding power state for all.
This year, our Honorary LUNAFEST Chairwomen are President Dr. Deidra Peaslee and Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Wendy Roberson of Saint Paul College (SPC). President Peaslee and VP Roberson graduated from Peacebuilding’s 5-day Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience (STAR) Training in July 2022 with other SPC leaders. They are making Saint Paul College Minnesota’s first mission-driven anti-racist, trauma-informed educational institution!
Instigated in 2010, Peacebuilding has served over 11,000 people from Minnesota, the US, and around the world. Eighty percent of Peacebuilding's graduates are women, 33% are from community of color, and the LGBTQ community is well represented. Because 50% of our trainee's request scholarship assistance, Peacebuilding’s Trainee Scholarship Fund ensures racial and economic diversity at all of our community programs.
