Learn these Important Skills via Zoom: MPT has always had very dynamic, engaging face-to-face skills trainings, and - with the emergence of Covid-19 - trying to convert them from "live" to "virtual" has been quite a challenge! No boring webinars for us! Check out our new Virtual interactive webinar Skills Trainings!
Our next Bystander Intervention Skills Training is Nov. 21, 2020

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.
