Transforming walls to bridges


CRIL works to expand the culture and accessibility of conflict resolution by offering spaces and opportunities for meaningful dialogue that counter systems of punitivity and exclusion. Using the tools of mediation, restorative processes, training, and other creative strategies, CRIL aims to shift the societal framework from one of violence to one of mutual understanding and collaboration.


CRIL envisions a Louisiana in which all residents have access to high-quality conflict resolution, and uses mediation and transformative justice to creatively address societal challenges.
