We’re thrilled to announce the 2020 ACR-GNY Achievement Award honorees: 

Commissioner Ana Bermúdez and Professor Baruch Bush.


Ana Bermúdez is the NYC Commissioner of Probation. She has been a tireless advocate for children and teenagers involved in the justice system for over 20 years. Commissioner Bermúdez has championed the development and implementation of strengths-based interventions, the application youth development practices, and programs that ensure successful re-integration for young people and adults in the justice system. Under her leadership, the Department of Probation has embraced a restorative practices approach to enhance public safety and to enable people on probation to permanently exit the justice system. Commissioner Bermúdez is the first openly gay person, first Latina, and second woman to be appointed Commissioner of Probation.

Baruch Bush is the Rains Distinguished Professor of Alternative Dispute Resolution at Hofstra University School of Law and Founding Fellow and Past President of the Institute for the Study of Conflict Transformation, a nonprofit think-tank that studies and promotes the understanding of conflict processes and intervention from the transformative framework. Through his groundbreaking book “The Promise of Mediation”, co-authored by Joseph Folger, Professor Bush helped establish the practice of transformative mediation, and has served as an ADR advocate and educator for over three decades. We celebrate his leadership in transformative mediation, ADR scholarship, and the creation of REDRESS, the USPS national mediation program. 

Join us to celebrate these two incredible people for their many contributions to -- and deep support for -- the field of conflict resolution at our 2020 Conference!
