The Center for Community Peacemaking is joining with Conflict Resolutions Services to expand transformative dialogue in Lancaster County and beyond. Together we can:

  • Facilitate healing in more than 200 incidents of youth and adult crime to help both those harmed and those who've harmed;
  • Mediate resolution in than 50 challenging situations of conflict among families, neighbors and institutions; 
  • Equip 100+ school teachers, counselors and administrators in restorative practices as an inclusive approach to discipline and community building;
  • Meet Arun Gandhi on May 4, grandson of Mohandas Gandhi and founder of the Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence;
  • And much more! 

The need is great for dialogue-based approaches to challenging situations. So is the opportunity. We are in a strong position to lead our community and Pennsylvania in alternatives to shouting, violence and retribution. Will you join us?

Have you been a victim of crime or other violation?
Were you part of a crime and want to make things right?
With volunteers and supporters like you, the Center for Community Peacemaking has been creating a culture of peace in Lancaster County through restorative justice like:

  • Restorative Victim-Offender Conferencing bringing together those harmed by crime with those who offended to "make things right."
  • Making Peace workshops for youth and their parents to practice healthy communication with their peers and each other.
  • Peacemaking Circles to transform divisions and address harm for large and small groups in the community building on the group's common values.
Through face-to-face dialogue and direct accountability, a deep and restoring justice is served. It's a justice that empowers "victims" and "offenders" to become change agents who can make our communities genuinely safer.
Join us as a partner, volunteer, friend and supporter of this transformative work.
