50th Anniversary

Founded in 1972, CRC has worked hard and creatively to equip people with the skills to turn conflict into learning and growth. Please join us throughout this milestone year as we highlight the power and possibilities of constructive, creative tools for addressing conflict and preventing and repairing harm.

We’ve held three terrific panels already and are also planning the following events:

10/20: Conflict Resolution Day Youth Panel
with our International Restorative Circle addressing restorative practices as a way of interrupting the school-to-prison pipeline, reducing police profiling and violence, and remediating harm caused by racism and prison;

11/17: Indigenous People’s Panel discussing the origins of restorative practices, CRC’s work with Native American communities, & contemporary work for indigenous justice with Phyllis Gagnier and others; and

12/10: Human Rights Day Friendraiser We’ll hold a modest gala to raise funds, glasses, and spirits as we close out our 50th year.

If you missed our earlier activities, no problem! We’ve been recording them.

  • We began the year with an MLK Jr. commemorative event focused on reparations for the enslavement of Black people in the U.S. (Reparations panel video here).

  • We held a panel on the history and global impact of CRC and conflict resolution education on April 6. (CRC history panel video here.)

  • And we just held, on May 3 National Teachers’ Day, a great panel on using CRC’s methods including restorative practices, conflict resolution, & peer mediation in the classroom. (Education panel video forthcoming.)

Check back here to learn more about our 50th anniversary activities. We hope you will participate in the engaging conversations and celebrations to come and move in community with us as we enter into our next 50 years!
