#RethinkSecurityUCP is for unarmed protection tips and trainings, imagining community-led safety and security, and for amplifying existing unarmed approaches. Unarmed civilian protection in the US is led by Nonviolent Peaceforce, Meta Peace Team, and DC Peace Team... and we are coming together for #RethinkSecurityUCP to uplift and support civilians in the call for racial justice and in the movement against police brutality and state-sanctioned violence.
Unarmed, civlian-led approaches to security aren't new. The questioning of militarized security isn't new. But now, around the world, more people than ever are rethinking: what really makes us safe?
True safety and security requires a lot of people working together.Unarmed civilian protection (UCP) is an important piece of the puzzle.
Our Listen, Learn, Act sessions are designed to support Americans’ right to public protest by building capacity in local groups to prevent violence during civil resistance actions and provide protective accompaniment for human rights activists.
