Embracing Nonviolence

Welcome to FOR Peace Presence!

Hello, and welcome to the brand new Fellowship of Reconciliation Peace Presence blog and news.

We are blessed here at FORPP – we have a shiny new organization, with all the dynamism and drive that implies, yet we also benefit from over 10 years’ experience working here in Colombia, promoting justice and active nonviolence as part of FOR USA.

We are, first and foremost, an accompaniment organization. What this means in practice is that we are “there” with Colombian activists when they need support – whether that means having someone there to act as an eye witness, or as an embodiment of international opinion standing there in a bright blue shirt, we improve the personal security of people whose lives are threatened by powerful people who want them silenced. We make sure we are in a position to be “there” when we are needed.
