Civic Engagement and Peacebuilding

Equal Access’ programs elevate previously unheard voices and develop more informed and engaged citizens with the capacity to address root causes of conflict, hold leaders accountable, and shape positive outcomes. Through media, trainings, roundtables, town hall forums, and inspiring public events, we create safe opportunities for elected officials, citizens, journalists, and religious and community leaders to join in dialogue and develop new solutions together. Over the past few years we have become award-winning thought leaders in the use of media to counter violent extremism, particularly in West Africa and The Sahel.
