Peace Brigades International

Peace Brigades International, Indonesia is a non-governmental organization that protects human rights and nonviolent transformation of conflicts. When invited, PBI sends teams of volunteers into areas of repression and conflict. The volunteers accompany human rights defenders, their organizations and others threatened by political violence. The presence of volunteers backed by a support network helps to deter violence. They create space for local activists to work for social justice and human rights. The Conscience Studio invites PBI to join our workshops. Although they were begun by Quakers and Gandhians, they are not a religious organization.
