AudioBlog: Juneteenth

Texas Conflict Coach Audio Blog by Pattie Porter

The Diversity, Race and Conflict show series for June is brought to you in partnership with the Maryland Judiciary’s Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office (MACRO) in Maryland, and with great appreciation to Lou Gieszl and Cheryl Jamison for their dedication and passion to this topic.

On the anniversary of Juneteenth, the day that commemorates the end of slavery in the U.S., Texas Conflict Coach will host a conversation with Anna Spain, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Colorado Law School about race, conflict and resolution in America. Introducing the concept of an identity-based approach, Prof. Spain will discuss techniques for engaging in difficult conversations about these themes in a responsible way and why such conversations are vital in today’s world.
