Between August 2004 and December 2005, we served as consultants and facilitators for an exploratory collaboration
of seven progressive organizations, whose missions support the practice of conflict resolution and education, bias prevention, restorative justice, community-based research and
mediation, peacemaking and dialogue. The participating organizations were PeaceWeb, Practitioners Research and
Scholarship Institute (PRASI), the Victim Offender Mediation Association (VOMA), the National Association for Community Mediation (NAFCM), the National Council on Dialogue and Deliberation (NCDD), Creative Response to Conflict (CRC) and the Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR). These organizations
all have a commitment to social justice, diversity inclusion and supporting community-based problem-solving and peacemaking. In this article, we hope to share our sense of the inspiring possibilities, challenges, accomplishments,
and lessons learned during this engaging and demanding effort.(excerpt)
