Sara Figal — Executive Director, Nashville Conflict Resolution Center

Speakers Friday, June 2, 2023

People need help with conflict. It is our mission to empower individuals and families to resolve conflict through mediation, so they can focus on family, work, school, and community.
For the past 22 years, NCRC has partnered with TN Courts, schools, and other organizations to provide free mediation services to low-income clients. Mediation is private and confidential, allowing successful participants to avoid eviction, further court or police involvement, loss of employment, school discipline, etc. We use a restorative approach to conflict resolution that draws both on ADR best practices and research regarding compassionate, trauma-informed care.
