CPT INTERNATIONAL: Mission, Vision and Values

  CPTers with leaders of CAHUCOPANA, a Colombian grassroots human rights group that organizes and trains for community action against militarization and paramilitary violence in their region.
“Our work is overcoming fear.”

Over the last couple of years, CPT has
been engaged in an organization-wide “Mission
and Presentation Re-visioning” process. As we approached the 25th anniversary of CPT’s founding, we
began to take a fresh look at the vision, mission, values and visual identity
of our organization. This process flowed out of our 2009 Strategic Directions
for Undoing Racism. We are pleased to unveil the fruits of our collaborative
process to date.
