Service to the Community

Service to the Community

    • Aug 2018 to  Aug 2018
      (Classification: Applied or Integration/Application Scholarship)
      Session Chair (Fort Worth, TX, United States)
      Panther City (Fort Worth, TX) Community Peacemakers
      For four sessions, I provided mediation training to senior members of the Fort Worth PD, and pastors and congregants of south Fort Worth churches.

      One evening the session ran an hour long. That night ended with a 75 minute candid, yet respectful exchange, on policing in the community.

      It was a powerful experience. I am proud to have been part of the process that brought these groups together.
