In Peace We Trust

Non-Violence: The Next Great Revolution

The documentary film In Peace We Trust by Petra Daher Productions explores the Meta Peace Team, a group promoting non-violent alternatives for over 20 years in the United States and abroad. The documentary features co-founder Peter Dougherty and explores the tools and resources the MPT uses to deal with conflict through a series of interviews with key members and footage of peace teams in action. The documentary exposes how the MPT provides resources for citizens to become peacemakers and the benefits and success of non-violent alternatives.

Poor People's Campaign 2018

It was an honor to document the Michigan Poor People's Campaign.  The event was inspired by the work of Martin Luther King.  The original campaign happened 50 years ago, to learn more visit the website or follow the group on social media.

The 2018 movement is very well organized and led by spiritual leaders and grassroots activists from around the country.  Their goal is to support the people most in need and to confront the distorted moral narrative.  Petra Productions, Photographed, filmed and captured intereviews at the first 5 actions in Michigan.
