Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice inspires, educates, and mobilizes people to unite across differences and to act from their shared ethical and spiritual values in pursuit of peace with social and environmental justice.
Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice envisions a world free from violence, including the violence of war, poverty, oppression, and environmental devastation. To enact this vision, we commit to nurture a community in which compassion and respect foster actions that dismantle systems of violence while simultaneously creating systems of peace, justice, and ecological sustainability.
As we see media accounts of attacks against immigrants, Muslims, and other populations, many of us have asked ourselves, “what would I do if I were there?”
The good news is that there are skills and techniques that you can learn and practice to keep others safe.
You don’t have to be passive! This training will show you how to respond. Sheri Wander, trainer for Meta Peace Team, and other facilitators will co-teach the basic tactics you can use to de-escalate or redirect threats and harassment.
