Happy news at the end of the year for Community Mediation in Tennessee!

Welcome, Mid-South Community Justice & Mediation Center!  Tennessee has a new nonprofit community mediation center, and it’s in Memphis.  I am so excited about the news.  The need is so great.  Here is CJAM’s mission statement:

The Mission of the Mid-South Community Justice and Mediation Center (CJAM) is to promote a civil and just community by providing Mid-South residents with high quality and affordable mediation services, conflict resolution, education and training.CJAM provides an array of educational opportunities ranging in topic, length, and cost which develop individual and organizational capacity to manage conflict. CJAM offers both Basic Mediation and Training. In addition, private and public organizations may contact CJAM for training tailored to specific needs. Workshops open to the public are also offered.

They plan to open for business before the end of the year.  Thanks are due to many mediators in Memphis for this wonderful development.
