Community Peacemaker Teams
CPT (previously Christian Peacemaker Teams) was founded in 1988 and is a multi-faith, international organization that places teams of peace workers in areas of conflict around the world. Working in these areas and militarized locations, the teams build partnerships with local peacemakers to promote nonviolent social changes and transform the existing systemic structures of oppression. Actions include advocacy for partnerships in Palestine, Iraqi Kurdistan, Colombia, Lesvos, Turtle Island, and other places; offering training and workshops that teach nonviolent tactics; and sending short-term delegations to oppressed communities that request their help.
