As a cooperatively organized community, Spark runs on collaboration and trust which requires healthy communication and a clear process for conflict resolution.
There are two identical sessions planned in May to introduce nonviolent communication skills and help those present come up with process to use when issues between members arise. Having a set method for how we move through disagreement and charged situations is critical and overdue. This workshop will introduce shared language and frameworks that will benefit all participants in and beyond their involvement in Spark.
Alejandro Melendez-Cooper from the Hispanic Alliance will lead the session at the Provenance Center. He has been leading trainings and facilitating conflict resolution for decades.
We anticipate that these sessions might be open and available semi-regularly for the benefit of not just Spark but members of the wider community as well.
