      Peace Ambassador Training

      This 3-hour session is open to all but required for those who agree to serve as a Peace Ambassador (or Safety Monitor) during various marches and rallies (including the Women’s March on January 19). If you've been trained in the past, this is optional but highly encouraged as a refresher course. While we are not engaging in civil disobedience and do not expect arrests, there is always the possibility of counter-protestors or violent agitators. This session teaches the CLARA technique for nonviolent engagement, de-escalation skills, and other practical tools. Participants will be taught to: a) remain clear, calm, and centered in a conflict, b) de-escalate potential conflict situations, and c) be a safe, effective Peace Ambassador. The session includes role-play and practical hands-on activities. Upon completion of the training, those who wish to serve will sign up and be provided further instructions of concrete duties. March route and logistics will be discussed as well. Brought to you by the Gandhi Team. If you have already been trained in the past, you may Sign Up to Serve here. Questions can be directed to  Duration: 3 hours  |  Trainers: Mica Stumpf Mica Stumpf received her B.A. in Peace and Conflict Studies from U.C.

In 2016 she became a certified counselor and currently works as a counselor in a private practice. For more information see She lives in Oakland, CA.
