PBI practices an effective approach to human rights protection known as protective accompaniment. PBI fields teams of international volunteers trained in nonviolence to accompany individuals and organizations facing death threats as a result of their work on behalf of human rights and social justice. PBI works based on principles of nonviolence, nonpartisanship and noninterference in the affairs of the groups they accompany. This experience also includes intensive networking with local, national, and international offices.
