NVMS Bridging Communities Welcome Breakfast

Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2022 | 8 am - 9:30 am

Hybla Valley Community Center: 7950 Audubon Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22306

When social compacts and safety nets break down and when systemic inequities displace, exclude, and segregate – conflict follows and dehumanizes neighbors. It is a perfect storm that pits neighbors, communities, and institutions against each other. People isolate from family connections and disassociate from familiar institutions – schools, work, and faith. Some are more likely to engage in criminal behavior or to gravitate to bad influences. Yes, conflict is inevitable, but helplessness and hopelessness are not.

The Bridging Communities Welcome Breakfast is an endeavor by NVMS Conflict Resolution Center to become a community bridge builder. We invite YOU for an interactive conversation with stakeholders, mediators, restorative justice facilitators, trainers, board members, donors, and other supportive friends – to learn more about how you can be a part of this public initiative for our communities.

NVMS stands for Northern Virginia Mediation Services — our original name. Today, we are the NVMS Conflict Resolution Center, a nonprofit organization based in Fairfax, Virginia. When conflicts arise at home, at work, or in the community, people turn to the NVMS Conflict Resolution Center to access mediators, facilitators, and training. People who access our programs and services — online or in-person — resolve their disputes, get better results from their teams, and are more prepared to navigate conflict in all aspects of their lives.
