Social Justice – CPT

Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) offers an organized, nonviolent alternative to war and other forms of lethal inter-group conflict. CPT provides organizational support to persons committed to faith-based nonviolent alternatives in situations where lethal conflict is an immediate reality or is supported by public policy.

CPT members are sent to crisis settings within North America and overseas with the following objectives:

  • advance the cause of lasting peace by giving skilled, courageous support to peacemakers working locally in situations of conflict.
  • inspire people and governments to discard violence in favor of nonviolent action as a means of settling differences.
  • provide home communities with first-hand information and resources for responding to worldwide situations of conflict, and to urge their active involvement.
  • interpret a non-violent perspective to the media.

CPT is involved in a variety of conflict situations around the world including Iraq, Afghanistan and Hebron.
