ADR Section to look at 'The Divided Community Project' on April 20

The Alternative Dispute Resolution Section of the State Bar of Michigan will present “ADR Lunch and Learn: The Divided Community Project” Wednesday, April 20, from noon to 1:30 p.m. via Zoom.

The project (DCP, is made up of dispute resolution practitioners, policymakers, scholars and community stakeholders. 

Housed in the Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University, DCP was developed to increase the capacity of communities to meet the challenges of tension, unrest and civil discord. It’s tools and training encourage community stakeholders to meet, build trust and plan in advance of crises so that, during a crisis, local leaders can use tools and relationships to identify and address community division and its underlying causes.  DCP knows each local community has the capacity to develop its own solutions to meet its unique needs.  Their services are free of charge for community leaders, campus leaders, faculty, community members, and attorneys or mediators to assist them in this important work. 

This presentation will include a “fish-bowl” multi-party role play exercise, to be debriefed in facilitated small groups and then in the main session.  Participants will experience DCP’s approach to strengthening and expanding a community’s capacity and resiliency to meet these challenges.

There is no cost.

To register, visit  Attendees will receive a confirmation email with information about joining the meeting.
