On Sunday, September 12th, we’ll be holding the 4th Annual Compete 4 A Cause Cribbage Tournament in the Boundary Bay Brewery Beer Garden from 9am to 4pm. This annual event is an important fundraiser for the Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center (WDRC) and all proceeds from this event go to support the WDRC programs.
The Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center offers conflict prevention and intervention services for businesses, organizations, individuals, and families. The organization seeks to help community members to better manage conflict as it arises and to learn ways to minimize the possibility of it occuring. To this end, they offer trainings for young people and adults, all in an effort to build skills and reduce unproductive conflict. The organization also provides mediation, facilitation, and consultation services to those in need of some type of intervention.
The mission of the Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center is to promote understanding, tolerance, and healing in our community by helping people transform conflict into creative and harmonious outcomes. With that goal in mind, the center educates and trains people in peaceful conflict resolution and provide neutral third parties to mediate or resolve conflicts in equitable and cooperative ways. In general, they hope to help Whatcom County to be a community in which people deal with conflict in creative and healthy ways.
