“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

for Undoing Racism. We are pleased to unveil the fruits of our collaborative
process to date.
