About the Event

Everywhere you look, the deep divide that has taken hold of our country is evident. Story after story point to news of a deeply divided nation. Politics have pitted family members against each other. Children are being taken from their families. Body cameras and mobile devices position to capture tense police-community interactions. And, the phrase "active shooter" is part of our normal vocabulary. Hate has become acceptable, some say even fashionable. What is our responsibility as conflict resolution practitioners to help Heal The Divide?

At ACR's 2019 Annual Conference, we want to explore this question from every angle and from every conflict resolution process:

  • What can we learn from research, and how can we apply what we have learned?
  • How can we help our families, our communities, and our nation begin to Heal the Divide?

Also, consider an optional networking event on Friday night, Evening Under the Stars—join your colleagues Friday night around the campfire for an Evening Under the Stars. Experience a guided tour of the stars through a telescope with an astronomer, meet and interact with some local animals (falcons, snakes, scorpions, bats), and listen to a Native American storyteller. Enjoy the cash bar on-site as you enjoy the company of your colleagues around the campfire. This event will take place at the conference hotel outdoor patio area. Be sure to register for this special evening when you register for the conference as space is limited. An additional fee applies.
