October 2021 AMA Member Meeting

The 1964 Civil Rights Act and Community Mediation: Now and Then 

Join AMA for our October member meeting as we welcome Felicia Washington and D.G. Mawn from the National Association For Community Mediation (NAFCM). Our speakers will discuss how the 1964 Civil Rights Act memorialized the work of community mediation, and how NAFCM was created in 1994 through the efforts of U.S. community mediation centers. NAFCM serves as the hub for the community mediation movement, and connects, supports, and advances the work of community mediation. Our time together will address:

  • What is community mediation? 
  • What NAFCM does for its organizational and individual members. 
  • Why did NAFCM co-create the TRUST Network? 
  • Share other avenues of synergized public and private efforts that focus on peace creation, community engagement and justice.
This gathering will be facilitated by Felicia Washington, MS, NAFCM Membership Resources Coordinator, and D.G. Mawn, MA, JD, President, NAFCM.

Location: Virtual ZOOM

When: Friday, October 29, 2021
