The Peace Movement
As of this writing, 2.7 million Ukrainians have fled their home, under the most frightening conditions, many with only a suitcase. As they arrive, they will have a host of needs: hygiene, medical, mental health, legal assistance, protection from harm and exploitation.
ryan-breslow.eth will match the DAO 100% when the total ETH contributed reaches 100 ETH. Rescue.org's CTO Daniel Coughlin will be speaking at Movement DAO's townhall on 3/17/22.
The Peace Movement DAO's purpose is to fund life-saving assistance and support for Ukrainian refugees and internally displaced people. The DAO will provide both immediate support as they are facing the onset of this humanitarian emergency and in the future as they rebuild their lives. The final section, "Possible Use of Proceeds", lists a number of activities which the DAO will vote on as funds become available.
Contributors to the Peace Movement will be rewarded with a unique "Peace-themed generative NFT" for Ethereum donations in increments of $1000, of which the first 1000 NFTs will be allocated. Additionally, based on demand, contributors have their choice of Polygon, Ethereum, or Tezos to claim their rewards. The Peace Movement is launching on the Ethereum Juicebox Protocol v1.1. Previous deployment on Polygon has been paused and will not continue to avoid confusion.
The Peace Movement DAO
While the initial generative Peace NFTs will be airdropped to contributors, Peace Movement plans on releasing curated sets of music NFTs on multiple platforms available only to Peace Movement DAO members. Subsequent NFT generative collections will be proposed by the community and curated by the nominated Peace Movement leadership. The Peace Movement has agreed to provide 15% of its treasury to the Movement DAO as a contribution to its endowment.
Charities & governments can be highly inefficient. Money goes towards high salaries, rent, and "general expenses." Movement DAO removes the overhead. Capital directly funds initiatives and experienced leaders help to manage where & how capital is deployed.
Movement DAO was created on February 2nd, 2022 at https://move.xyz and its corresponding Gnosis to empower the collective via Web3 tooling, programmable treasuries, defi, and unwavering passion to change the world for the better. The vehicle for such change are Movements. The DAO has been active in expanding both the community's online forums and key development projects to further this objective. A unique aspect of Movements is in the requirement for the community to nominate leaders. Leaders are responsible for conveying community wishes and attaching reputation to actions.
Operations and development efforts are underway for governance, including the ongoing engineering activities and contributions to the Juicebox Protocol v2, extensions to the protocol, and collaborations.
In pursuit of Peace Movement DAO's interest to fund support for Ukrainian refugees, community member Daniel Coughlin has volunteered to provide advice and insights on the social sector and humanitarian work as the community requires. Mr. Coughlin has 10 years of experience in the humanitarian sector and serves as the Director of Data Insights, Systems, and Architecture at the International Rescue Committee.
As the communities are bootstrapping themselves, Movement DAO and any affiliated movements will adopt Juicebox Treasury Protocol for starting and operating the Peace Movement DAO. The Movement DAO endowment will remain in the Gnosis until a platform is secured for Movements to operate, which is expected to be after the Juicebox v2 deployments, estimated to be at the end of May 2022.
