DC Peace Team Partners – Grounding & Sustaining the DC Peace Team

Date grant awarded: April 9, 2018

The “DC Peace Team (DCPT)” aims to provide training, accompaniment, and conflict monitoring. This project builds a culture of nonviolent peacemaking in the nation’s capitol and beyond. DCPT was formed because of the inspiration from Nonviolent Peace Force, Peace Brigades International, Cure Violence, and other organizations that train civilians to defuse violence and build up community.

The project has provided support and intervention at many DC protests and even the Republican National Convention.
