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 ldieckman@nafcm.org and link your activities to NAFCM using #NAFCMmorethan.
