Call for 8th Annual SF Peacemaker Awards Nominations

Greetings from Community Boards, San Francisco's public conflict resolution center! 

Community Boards provides a citywide array of conflict resolution services: mediation, conflict coaching, facilitation, and training. Our Neighborhood Mediation Program is the oldest public mediation service in the U.S.

We need your assistance and guidance in selecting the nominees for our upcoming 8th Annual San Francisco Peacemaker Awards on June 1.

Our three awards honor an individual, an organization, and a youth for their contributions in making San Francisco communities and neighborhoods safer and healthier places to live and work.

As a community stakeholder, please take a moment to nominate individuals and organizations working in San Francisco to promote peacemaking and conflict resolution through community engagement, direct social services, or public education.

You may make multiple nominations.  However, you will need to submit separate nominations if you wish to nominate more than one in the same award category.

You may also renominate the same people or organizations if you submitted them for earlier SF Peacemaker Awards.

We eagerly await your responses, and thank you in advance for your participation!

Nominations deadline: Friday, March 30, 2018.
