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. We partner 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 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, or call (213) 896-6533.
