Consider joining the ESCRO Team for a free 2-day conference focusing on Urban Public Policy and Dispute Resolution scheduled for Monday and Tuesday May 11-12 at Wayne State University Student Center Ballroom.
In addition to a lunchtime presentation by Detroit federal bankruptcy mediators Judge Gerald Rosen and noted attorney Eugene Driker, confirmed national speakers include Maria Volpe (John Jay College of Criminal Justice in NY, former president of SPIDR, developer of Cops and Kids program), Josh Stulberg (one of our founding MADR faculty, now at Ohio State Law School), Jay Rothman (author of Resolving Identity Based Conflicts, known for his work with the Cincinnati Police-Community Relations Collaborative after a police misuse of force case there), and Chris Carlson (co-founder of the Policy Consensus Initiative and former ED of the Ohio Commission on Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management).
Lots of great resource people will be attending and presenting and a couple of post-conference training sessions by Maria Volpe and Jay Rothman on the afternoon of the 12th will provide a skill-building opportunity for only a $50 additional fee.
