CPT placeas teams of international volunteers in conflict settings as a violence reduction presence. CPT is cross denominational with strong roots grounded in the Quakers, Mennonites, and Church of the Brethren. Teams of four to twelve persons join the efforts of local peacemakers facing imminent violence. They accompany threatened individuals, report on human rights abuses, plan and execute nonviolent public responses to injustice, and train others in nonviolent direct action.
