Alison Diviney and Stephanie Palumbo are the co-creators of Small Victories. That's us in the photo!

This is a team effort, and we love hearing from you. Drop us a line: smallvictories@peaceisloud.org.



Alison's interest and involvement in politics began around the age of 18 when she registered and voted in her first election between George W. Bush and Al Gore. After moving from North Carolina to New York in 2004, she spent over a decade working in independent film distribution, and for the past two years has been an impact producer, combining her love of movies and activism. When she's not writing Small Victories and finding the best gif to express her emotions, you can find her watching West Wing episodes on repeat, running in the park, doting on her 27 plant children whom she loves dearly, or dreaming about the day when she can finally adopt a pup.


Stephanie spent her high school years organizing with a local youth activist group, and then began her documentary film career as a researcher for Michael Moore while in college. After more than a decade of producing, she has recently transitioned to running documentary film impact campaigns, helping grassroots groups use films to advance their work. Stephanie relies on Dough donuts and comedy podcasts as a form of self-care (God bless Paul F. Tompkins), and she lives in Brooklyn with her husband and two cats.
