Due to the COVID-19 Public Health Guidelines, CRM will be hosting the 2020 ’Healing the Divide’ Conference as an online webinar series.  In addition to promoting physical health, physical distancing also adds to the divisions in our community and requires us to work harder to connect in other ways.  

CRM aspires to encourage imaginative ways of ‘Healing the Divide’, in all of our communities.  We will promote and continue the conversations in this online ’Healing the Divide’ webinar series. The first webinar will feature the conference keynote speaker panel.  The following webinars will feature workshops and Healing the Divide online gathering conversations. 

The 1964 Civil Rights Act, Section 10b, is a call to aid individuals and communities in resolving disagreements or difficulties around practices that impair human rights and thereby threaten peaceful relations.  What should we be doing or not doing to respond to this call?

At the 2019 Conference we began taking a fresh look at the field of Conflict Resolution in Minnesota. Listening Sessions with our community highlighted divisions between the community, the field of conflict resolution, and the work in addressing human rights issues that threaten peaceful relations. At the conference, we began exploring and redefining the relationship between conflict resolution and equity. The 2019 keynote speaker and community leaders panel shared insights from their unique and diverse perspectives. Workshops provided opportunities for participants to explore the theme as it relates to their context.

The 2020 CRM Healing the Divide Webinar Series expands on this work with a collaborative and participatory approach. In addition to a diverse array of keynote speakers and workshops, we are invited to conversations in our sectors of the community to reflect on what we take away from the Healing the Divide Webinar Series and imagine next steps. In a wrap-up reflection and action session we will learn from each other across our sectors and begin planning action steps forward to Heal the Divide.

Handouts:
We are providing some handouts electronically on our website. Feel free to print them or bring your electronic device to view them in the session.

Continuing Education Credits: We will be applying for TBD Standard CLE, TBD Ethics CLE, TBD Elimination of Bias CLE, TBD Rule 114 credits and TBD CEUs applied for to the Minnesota State Board of Social Work.
