June is:  Building A More Equitable World


This month, honor NAFCM Hallmarks 8 and 9 by facilitating a conversation about an issue of social justice, fairness, and equity. Or, your organization could hold a workshop about how to disagree productively, promoting community civic engagement.


Alternative options to make it your own:

  • Host a circle conversation to discuss questions such as: “What does principles of community mediation add to our lives?” “How do you balance the pursuit of happiness/ freedom?”
  • Host a training for volunteer mediators about power imbalances in the mediation process and ways to ensure that the process is experienced as fair by all parties.
  • Reach out to local organizations who are celebrating Juneteenth and learn how they would like you to support the celebration(s).
  • Hold affirmative recruitment drives to invite new volunteer mediators that represent the community your organization serves.
  • Raise funds to help interested individuals attend a mediator training.
  • Use accessible terms such as “people” or “participants” rather than “parties.”

Let us know what you're doing!  Send us your stories by sending your photos and updates to and link your activities to NAFCM using #NAFCMmorethan.
