Center for Reconciliation (CFR) Conversation Series

The Center for Reconciliation will host regular meetings to foster understanding of topics related to conflict transformation, just peace, and reconciliation. CFR believes the way we engage conflict has the potential to support personal, community, and institutional transformation. Participants can learn from practitioners and spark their moral imagination for better ways to address conflict during these in-person conversations.
