Domestic and International Peace Teams

Multiple Domestic Peace Teams (within the U.S. borders) occur annually.  We frequently send Peace Teams to the US/Mexico Border to do protective accompaniment with asylum seekers, with occasional Peace Teams to the Occupied Territories.

Population(s) Served

MPT offers basic and advanced violence de-escalation skills trainings geared to the participants' needs. We provide participants with the background knowledge and specific skills to apply the healing and transforming power of nonviolence to situations of conflict and violence wherever they may occur. Workshops are experiential and participatory in nature. Participants learn about nonviolence and empowered peacemaking through exercises and role plays facilitated by our experienced and highly qualified trainers

Population(s) Served

Meta Peace Team members are frequently asked to give presentations on their first-hand experiences in the field of active nonviolent peacemaking. Knowledgeable speakers are available to present discussions on: How to organize local/community peace teams; What's happening at the US/Mexico Border; The current situation in the West Bank/Gaza; The benefits of ordinary citizens training for nonviolence; Social analysis and nonviolent social change; Nonviolence as a Christian mandate; ....and more!
