We envision a society committed to sustainable peace and justice.
We commit to creating and sustaining a DC peace team that cultivates the virtue of nonviolent peacemaking and key corresponding practices. We commit to empowering ordinary civilians to increasingly serve their communities particularly as nonviolent peacekeepers, and by extension as peacemakers and peacebuilders.
The DC Peace Team lives this mission by:
- deploying unarmed civilian protection and peacekeeping units
- providing training in various nonviolent skills
- offering peace education for children and adults
- facilitating dialogues and restorative justice approaches
The unique niche we fill in the DC metro area is developing the tradition of nonviolent peacekeeping, networking of partner organizations and community members, and collaborative projects that bring these effective nonviolent practices together.
**In combination with international peace teams, we hope that developing local peace teams will contribute to understanding the power of nonviolent peacemaking. We hope to demonstrate and promote a restorative justice model with our communities. In turn, we hope to contribute to gradually transforming the way we engage conflict locally and with other actors around the world.
