Eastern Mennonite Missions (EMM), a registered non-profit based in the United States, has chosen to join Dove Tale Productions in documenting the exploration of community in sustaining nonviolence and asking, “What does it take to create a culture of nonviolence?” Equipping people for peacemaking is one of the four core activities of EMM’s Christian-Muslim Relations Team, whose mission is “building bridges of loving and respectful connection.” EMM has designated the creation of a peacemaking documentary as one of the activities of their Christian-Muslim Relations Team (CMRT) and, based on a shared commitment to peace and nonviolence, supports Dove Tale Productions in the production of Unexpected Peace. Dove Tale Productions maintains full artistic and creative freedom and shall own the picture and have final say as to the content, treatment, and development of the documentary.

The Peace and Reconciliation Network (PRN) of the World Evangelical Alliance is establishing a worldwide structure to enhance peace and reconciliation. Their vision and mission is to unite global peacemakers and work together towards conflict transformation, bringing restoration, justice and peace into local communities.
The PRN recognizes five sources of conflict: cultural and religious tensions; excluding politics; injustice to the access of resources; misuse of power; competing worldviews. In order to bring peace and restoration there is a need to equip local and national players with new capacities.
PRN’s strategy TRAIN (Teaching, Restoration, Assistance, Initiative, Networking) not only helps to assist individuals for peace and restoration but also to initiate alliances where there is no existing peace initiative. It uses resources from the global network to teach and to establish centers to train them.
