An equitable and inclusive world in which every one of us can realize our fullest potential.
Using a social justice lens in the delivery of our services, we will set the stage for social change and greater inclusivity. We are opening our doors wider and actively making our services more accessible and inclusive.
Taking risks, accepting responsibility for our mistakes and committing to continual self-examination.
As we embark on our new expanded social justice journey, we will make mistakes. We are committed to acknowledging our mistakes and putting policies and procedures into place to avoid repeating them.
Relationships built on trust, accountability, compassion, and care for self and others.
Healthy relationships are the foundation of a healthy community. When we disagree, we listen with compassion to each other in an effort to understand and work towards finding a constructive solution. By doing so, we cultivate respectful relationships in a respectful learning environment.
Providing spaces and frameworks for people to build trust, connect across differences, and take the lead in their own transformation.
Through our services, we offer community members a safe environment to have difficult conversations and to explore deeper understandings of complex issues.
Creating change. Balancing equity, privilege and power in our conversations and services.
Resolutions Northwest is a unique organization in the Portland area providing a wide range of mediation and facilitation services that help community members find solutions to conflict. By working with real people and providing real help in conflict resolution, Resolutions Northwest works to make Portland a more livable community. We help families, neighborhoods and communities creatively address conflict. Whether the conflict is interpersonal, like two neighbors trying to resolve conflict over barking dogs, clucking chickens or untrimmed bushes and trees; or helping groups of neighbors create a good neighbor agreement around the siting of a domestic violence shelter, our mission is to teach principles of conflict resolution that empower each person we work with to contribute to a fairer, more just and more equitable community. We are building peace resolving one conflict at a time.
