This webinar will explore the role of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) practitioners in building trust when working on environment and public policy issues, in particular with communities working for environmental justice. In addition, due to the long history of racism, injustice, and segregation these communities have faced, it is also important to explore the role of collective healing. ADR practitioners can help these communities design collaborative, inclusive, and transparent processes that can advance social justice and promote healing. As part of this we will explore the notion “neutrality” and the importance of the work outside of the room to equitably assess needs and understand perspectives.
