CPT builds partnerships to transform violence and oppression in situations of conflict.
At the invitation of local peacemaking communities, CPT provides physical accompaniment, advocacy, human rights observation and reporting, and solidarity networking.
CPT understands violence to be rooted in systemic structures of oppression and works to undo oppressive structures. By amplifying the voices and nonviolent actions of our partners who risk their lives to confront oppression, CPT helps protect human rights and strengthen nonviolent social change initiatives.
With roots in the Historic Peace Churches, CPT’s membership is a broad multi-faith network that supports peacemaking and protection of human rights around the world.
Delegations are a primary way to become involved in the work of CPT. Delegations are open to all interested people and do not require specific nonviolence training. They offer participants a first-hand experience to engage with local peacemakers who are working with initiatives promoting equality and the struggle for justice and liberation in various regions of the world.
Delegations are also the first step for those considering joining CPT’s Peacemaker Corps either full or part-time. Peacemaker Corps members staff CPT’s long-term violence- reduction projects around the world.
