Striving to Resolve Conflict and Promote Social Justice

Resolutions Northwest is a non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating dialogue to advance social and racial justice and resolve conflict. The organization was founded in 1985 by a small group of community members who sought to address juvenile crime and reduce violence. In 2014, Resolutions Northwest merged with Uniting to Understand Racism to incorporate a social justice lens to their mission to reduce juvenile violence and crime.

The organization offers a wide variety of services including mediation, facilitation, training workshops, and seminars to promote their trademark concept, Restorative Justice. Mediation is a service where a trained individual will assist two parties that are in conflict at work, home, or in the neighborhood. Facilitation is a service designed to open up discussion about issues in a group setting.

Resolutions Northwest also offers training workshops designed to help organizations develop the skills to reduce conflict, and promote diversity and equality. Lastly, this organization promotes the idea of Restorative Justice, which is the philosophy is being responsible for one’s actions that have harmed someone. They promote the idea primarily in schools around the Portland area, and seek to end juvenile violence through the introduction of dialogue.

The organization is making great strides to promote equality and justice in our community, and is working around the clock to make the Portland area a better place.
