The murder of George Floyd and others brought the problem of violence against and within the African American community in the Twin Cities to the fore. Black activist Miki Lewis-Frost saw it as a call to action for community peace-making. No stranger to violence and crime himself, he founded the 8218 Truce Center as a nonprofit community mediation program primarily serving (but not limited to) African American youth in the Twin Cities. In this webinar, Miki will discuss what community mediation is, how it works, its advantages, and the role that culture plays in the process. He will also talk about how he de-escalates tense situations.
