We cultivate the habits and skills of nonviolence in our communities, so we can better resist injustice, and thus, build a more sustainable just peace.
The DC Peace Team lives this mission by:
Deploying unarmed civilian protection units
Providing training in key nonviolent skills
Facilitating restorative circles
Advocating for change
We envision a society committed to sustainable peace and justice.
From Washington, DC to other communities around the world, the people we serve are discovering and embracing the practice of nonviolence through Unarmed Civilian Protection (UCP) and Accompaniment, networking opportunities, and collaborative projects that bring to life the range of effective nonviolent skills we teach.
It is our hope that empowering people to join the nonviolent movement and supporting local peace efforts will contribute to build sustainable peace and justice, while transforming the way we address conflict locally and internationally.
