Nonviolence Workshop

While violence and oppression continue to plague our communities, people are taking to the streets to demand justice. Protest and nonviolent direct action are key to bring about social change. Yet as we prepare to hit the streets, we know we will come face to face with opposition, therefore learning skills in de-escalation is pivotal for us to reach our goals and keep our communities safe. This interactive workshop will hone and build our skillset to de-escalate counter-protesters and armed authorities. 

Undoing Oppressions Workshop

Undoing Oppressions is a constant and crucial part of our work at CPT and something that we are deeply committed to. Our work is founded on the belief that oppression leads to violence, and that challenging oppressive systems is necessary to achieve peace. This workshop will be an opportunity for us to learn together and develop the tools and awareness to do the work of Undoing Oppressions in our everyday lives. 

Teams Meet & Greet

You’ll have the opportunity to meet folks from our Palestine, Lesvos, Greece, Iraqi Kurdistan and Colombia teams, as well as members of the Turtle Island Solidarity Network. They will share about and what’s happening on the ground, as well as ways in which you can take action and get involved with our work. There will also be a space for any questions you might have.
