PJALS is offering our first Peacekeeper Training since before the pandemic began! This is a great workshop on nonviolent de-escalation skills for protesters, organizers, and folks thinking of volunteering as peacekeepers for any social justice cause! Come learn how trained peacekeepers can help create a successful event for social justice and peace. We’ll cover nonviolence principles and guidelines, techniques to defuse and de-escalate potentially volatile situations, and how to organize a team of peacekeepers. And, we’ll practice so we are more likely to use these new skills in real life!


This workshop will prepare potential peacekeepers for Spokane Pride! Successfully completing this training makes you eligible to join PJALS’ Peacekeeper Team, but there is NO obligation.
This workshop is open to people who have completed at least their initial COVID-19 vaccinations.
