Elements of the Catholic Worker Peace Team model:

  • Short duration
  • Personalist (non-governmental)
  • Spiritually-based
  • Direct service to those in need
  • Information gathering
  • Nonviolent direct action to make the situation better

Scott and Brenna are planning a May 2009 trip to Gaza, Sderot, and the West Bank. Their trip to Darfur and its aftermath was the first project documented on Pie and Coffee.
