Focus on Friend-Raising



Many churches, meetings, peace groups and individuals raise support for the work of CPT in diverse and creative ways.  We dedicate this corner to those stories, both as a way to say “Thank You!” and as an inspiration to others.  Please send your friend-raising stories to

The Mennonite Church and the Muslim community of Floradale, Ontario produced a dinner theatre featuring a traditional Middle Eastern meal and the play “Those Shoes of Peace,” a story of a CPTer’s peacemaking in Palestine and return home to North America where he faces opposition from his family.  Proceeds were divided between CPT and the church’s Palestinian Refugee Committee. CPT received $4857!

Mail Alert

We want to inform our constituents about interruptions to both Canadian and US mail services.

As global capitalism continues to exploit, Canada is seeing an increase of folks sleeping on the street. In Toronto, there is a growing encampment on the church property where our office is located. CPT is in solidarity with residents of the encampment.  Unfortunately, some Canada Post workers have since refused to deliver mail to our office. We are unsure if the mail is being stored somewhere or will be returned to sender. To ensure your donations make it to CPT, now would be a good time to switch to online donations, if you are able.  

In the US, postal services have been increasingly unreliable. If you are able, we encourage you to consider a monthly online giving plan which you can easily set up.
