    Social Justice Resilience and Community Building

    We work with local social justice organizations to implement Council Practice. To serve the needs of the populations they serve, these organizations must develop their capacity to listen deeply and compassionately so as to understand both the context and history of the underlying issues. The practice of deep listening without judgment fosters an atmosphere of respect for one’s self and others, promotes empathy, understanding and cooperation.
