Training in Peaceful Direct Action. As Mennonites we are increasingly being asked to speak up for justice, drawing on our heritage as peacebuilders. On Saturday, March 19 from 10am-1pm, join members of many different MCM churches for a 3-hour virtual training session with Community Peacemaker Teams. Participants will learn de-escalation skills and tips about preparing for non-violent protest, interacting with police and counter-protestors, and practicing self-care.  All are welcome!  Registration is required.  Contact [email protected] with questions or to include your church as a sponsor.  Sponsors of this CPT training session include committees from Hope Mennonite, Home Street Mennonite, Sargent Mennonite, Seeds Church, Fort Garry Mennonite, First Mennonite, Charleswood Mennonite, and Bethel Mennonite.
