Vital Village Mediators

Vital Village Mediators help peacefully resolve conflicts using a social justice lens. This team of community volunteers is leveraging the power of civic engagement to support meaningful social change. 

Social justice mediation is a method of conflict resolution which strives to address underlying issues while preserving and fostering relationships.  The Vital Village Mediators were trained through the Social Justice Mediation Institute. Mediators complete the SJMI Certification and engage in ongoing practice improvement and peer training.

Over 57 mediators completed SJMI training between 2014-2016.  Currently a team of 12 Vital Village Mediators are engaging in volunteer community mediations. The team is led by two community champions: Dominique Graham and Myles Green.
