The Los Angeles County Bar Association Dispute Resolution Services (DRS) is now the Center for Civic Mediation!
We continue to provide outstanding community and youth services under the new name, assisting more individuals, schools, organizations and families to peacefully address and resolve conflict.
Be sure to check out the Center for Civic Mediation's website (www.centerforcivicmediation.org) that is an important resource for individuals, schools and community organizations.
THE CENTER FOR CIVIC MEDIATION was originally established by the Los Angeles County Bar Association as the Neighborhood Justice Center, one of the first three Community Mediation centers in the country. The Center for Civic Mediation helps individuals, families, and communities to resolve conflicts through mediation, facilitation, and other problem-solving methods. The Center provides mediation and conflict resolution training, education, and coaching that prepares people with the skills to constructively address disputes in personal, community, and work settings. The Center for Civic Mediation partners and works collaboratively with local governments, schools, social service agencies, law enforcement, and courts as well as private and public organizations and businesses. For further information, contact Jacklin Mizrahi at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (213) 896-6533.
National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell demonstrated a sense of humor as well as deep gratitude to the Center for Civic Mediation as he accepted the organization's 2012 Corporate ADR Award from LAPD Chief Charlie Beck on behalf of the NFL at the Center for Civic Mediation's 19th annual Awards Dinner, held on April 17, 2012.
The Center for Civic Mediation receives support from the Los Angeles County Dispute Resolution Program through the Department of Community & Senior Services, the City of West Hollywood, the City of Santa Monica, Los Angeles County Bar Foundation and generous private donors.
