Domestic Peace Teams

 

Domestic Peace Teams

​Domestic Peace Teams are teams placed within the U.S. borders.  They are usually short-term (anywhere from a few hours to a few days).  To serve on one of our Domestic Teams, you must complete our Violence De-escalation Skills Training.  The nature of Domestic Teams is that they are often unpredictable. If we're lucky, we may get a few weeks notice (for example, to prevent violence at a rally).  Often, however, we only get a few days notice … usually in reaction to something that's happening in the news.  Being a part of these Teams is extremely rewarding.  You get to see the power and efficacy of nonviolence in action.  If you're interested in learning more about our Domestic Peace Teams, please contact Kim Redigan.
