Meta Peace Team would like to express our appreciation for the courage and integrity of Mr. Jonathan Price, and offer our deepest condolences to his family and friends.  Mr. Price, already recognized as a community leader and youth mentor, intervened last week in a domestic disturbance and successfully broke up a fight in progress.  However, when a police officer arrived on the scene, the officer shot & killed Mr. Price  (full story at Washington Post article).

MPT asks that you keep Mr. Price, his family, and all involved in your thoughts and prayers, that you honor his legacy by embracing unarmed civilian protection, and you support advocay groups like Black Lives Matter.

META PEACE TEAM (MPT) empowers people to engage in active nonviolent peacemaking.  MPT was started in 1993 as Michigan Peace Team, in response to the growing need for civilian peace-makers both in the U.S. and abroad.  Since that time, we have moved far beyond (in the Greek, Meta) the borders of Michigan.

MPT offers nonviolence training workshops and provide opportunities to join peace teams.

We seek a just world grounded in nonviolence and respect for the sacred interconnectedness of all life.
