Update from Christian Peacemaker Teams

by Terra Winston

I had the wonderful privilege of representing the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship in two very important meetings of the Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) in Cali, Colombia. The first meeting was for the Race Relations Council. At the heart of CPT is a real commitment to undoing oppression of all sorts including racial oppression. In order to do this work in a sincere way, CPT realizes that real work and focus needs to be part of their commitment. Along with anti-racism and anti-oppression trainings, they also bring people together to look at every aspect of the organization and how it is functioning to do the work of anti-oppression.
