What would a uniquely Louisville Truth and Reconciliation process look like? What would need to happen over the next 3 to 5 years to create an equitable Louisville and restore broken relationships? Join us at LouLab as we begin to explore these ideas.

For several weeks LouLab will be exploring “Truth and Reconciliation”models. Our hope is to add to the emerging conversation on developing a uniquely Louisville process.
This week Howard Mason will lead is on a conversation on conflict Transformation
Conflict transformation reframes the way peace building work is done. Conflict transformation is a process of engaging with and transforming personal, relational, systemic and cultural and dimensions that support the continuation of conflict.
It focuses on:
• Seeing the immediate situation.
• Seeing past the immediate problems and viewing the deeper relationship patterns that form the context of the conflict. This goes beyond finding a quick solution to the problem at hand, and seeks to address what is happening in human relationships at a deeper level.
• Envisioning a framework that holds these together and creates a platform to address the content, the context, and the structure of the relationship. From this platform, parties can begin to find creative responses and solutions.
