ADR'S ROLE IN FIGHTING OPPRESSION: 


HEALING RELATIONSHIPS, PRACTICES, POLICIES, LANGUAGE, ORGANIZATIONS AND PARTNERSHIPS





HASSHAN BATTS



Healing occurs through relationships and in the context of community. The challenge has been made to the ADR movement to recommit to fighting oppression through healing relationships, practices, policies, language, organizations and partnerships. 


Join us for a conversation with Hasshan Batts centered around:

  • How do we live our espoused values of contributing to a just and healthy community
  • What is the role of the ADR movement in facilitating healing for individuals, restoring families, building communities and promoting collective impact?
