Blogging for peace

For from-the-field dispatches on peace-building efforts, check out the Blogs page of the Advocacy Project, a Washington, D.C.-based organization that, in its own words, "seeks to help community-based human rights advocates produce, disseminate and use information, and in so doing advance social justice."
The Project's sent 34 women and men -- mostly women -- across the globe to work as Peace Fellows on a variety of projects. Each is committed to blogging her or his experiences at least once a week. (photo credit)
