Facilitators from the Mediation and Conflict Resolution Center lead a session designed to get participants involved in healthy dialogue about topics that matter in our community. This session will use a community circle format which will encourage all present to participate by sharing and hearing individual perspectives. All are welcome to attend.
Participants are invited to consider the following prompts in advance of attending:
- “We must design communities that can survive change and, when necessary, seek change.” – John W. Gardner
- “How we handle conflicts within a community is important to the long-term success of the community.” – DB Hurley
- “Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict.” – Dorothy Thompson
