The DC Peace Team is made up of members from key partner organizations along with other expert trainers and community members concerned with making the DC metro area a more nonviolent and just community.

Core partners include:


Community Mediation DC (CMDC) provides free mediation to all DC residents and teaches conflict resolution skills to neighbors, organizations, families, schools and community members across the city.  We rely on highly skilled volunteer mediators, trained for free in exchange for volunteer hours, who reflect the diversity of the community we serve, and hold mediation in the neighborhoods where disputes occur. Call 240-766-5311 to request mediation.

DC Alliance for Restorative Practices focuses on raising awareness around, advocating for, and supporting the integration of evidence-based restorative practices in DC’s justice and dependency systems, schools, and community based youth-serving organizations to foster community and more effectively address the impacts of harm.

*We also work in coalition with many other organizations such as Palm Collective, Showing Up for Racial Justice- DC, Poor People’s Campaign- DC Chapter, ONE DC, The Hive, Capitol NVC, the Trust Network, Pax Christi USA, and Pace e Bene, etc.

Partnerships with Other UCP Organizations

We are part of the Shanti Sena Network of U.S. and Canadian organizations offering unarmed civilian protection. This network helps us effectively build relationships, exchange information about local realities, mobilize for UCP, and share training resources and assessment tools.
