The event will take place from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. in the boardroom at PRPC, 415 S.W. 8th.

“It is important for the community to be aware that this valuable resource exists in the Texas Panhandle. We provide services to help community members resolve conflicts in all areas of their life, whether personal, professional or neighborhood disputes,” said Program Coordinator for the Dispute Resolution Center, Jerri Glover.

According to a press release, Conflict Resolution Day was established in 2005 by the Association for Conflict Resolution. It also coincides with the American Bar Association Mediation Week.

The release states both events hope to make others aware of peaceful and effective ways to resolve conflict.
