CPT builds partnerships to transform violence and oppression in situations of lethal conflict around the world. We are committed to work and relationships that: honor and reflect the presence of faith and spirituality, strengthen grassroots initiatives, transform structures of domination and oppression, and embody creative nonviolence and liberating love.
CPT understands violence to be rooted in systemic structures of oppression. We are committed to undoing oppressions within our own lives and in the policies and practices of our organization. We are an organization with multi-faith and spiritually diverse membership, committed to building teams that reflects the rich diversity of the human family in ability, age, class, ethnicity, gender identity, language, national origin, race and sexual orientation. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older.
