From Drama to Calma: Transformative Tools for Conflict Mediation
When: Saturdays June 30 and July 7, 10am-1pm pacific // 12p-3pm central // 1pm-4pm eastern

Facilitated by: Lisa Marie Alatorre ( and Fatima Arain (

What: Through our various community work over the last 15 years, we have seen time and time again that radical, social justice-oriented spaces struggle deeply with addressing conflict and harmful power dynamics within their spaces.  Existing within a police state teaches us that we must address these behaviors in either a dismissive or punitive manner, and that the skills that our communities hold are not “enough” to adequately address the harms that might occur.  In this current political climate, it is increasingly urgent that we continue to build strategies for addressing violence and harm in our own communities without relying on the state, or the methods that it has taught us.  We believe in the power to change our communities and to live within the values that we fight for.

This two-part webinar series will guide a cohort of participants through understanding oppression and intersectionality and how these concepts impact conflict and conflict resolution. Together we will build a shared language on these topics, in order to confront the ways that power and oppression impact how we hold space for ourselves and others in our communities. The cohort will learn the transformative potential of conflict and how to lean-in towards community resilience and away from state reliance. Participants will learn concrete skills in conflict mediation for both smaller mediations as well as larger community-based processes.

Payment: Suggested fee of $100, please pay what you can, no one turned away for lack of funds. Making a payment higher than the suggested fee, if you are able, supports our commitment to make our workshops accessible for anyone who wants to join. Details for payment sent upon registration.
