Imagine a community…

Where conflict is seen as an opportunity.

Where people in conflict regularly seek a constructive forum for resolving differences.

Where schools teach children effective communication skills.

Where everyone can use mediation regardless of economic circumstances.

Where people who harm others have the opportunity to make things as right as possible through a “restorative” justice process.

Where constructive, creative problem solving is used as a first resort to reach agreements, repair relationships and build community.

Imagine this is our community.
