Conflict Resolution Center Expanding to Memphis
The Nashville Conflict Resolution Center, which provides free and low-cost victim-offender mediation, is expanding its services to Memphis thanks to a grant from the federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA). The center will receive $500,000 over three years to serve the Memphis area. The work there will be done in partnership with the Shelby County Juvenile Court, led by Judge Dan Michael, and the Shelby County Community Justice & Mediation Center. The Memphis office will be run by family mediator Karen Phillips. (Credit: Tennesse Bar Association & Nashville Conflict Resolution Center)
