Need for Racial Healing
Many times our approach to racial healing is in response to a crisis in our community. We are offering a different way of talking about race that is preemptive rather than waiting for the conflict. We aim at building strong relationships capable of holding the important healing dialogues we need around race. This is a gathering of people who are ready to experience the circle process with a focus on racial healing and who are interested in learning how to bring racial conversations to their community.

About Peacemaking Circles
Peacemaking Circles provide the space for transforming relationships. Circles process taps into both ancient practices and modern processes to create trust, intimacy, goodwill, belonging, generosity, mutuality, and reciprocity. Circles intentionally create a sacred space that lifts barriers between people, opening possibilities for connection, collaboration, and mutual understanding. The process is never about changing others, but rather is an invitation to change one’s relationship with oneself, to the community, and to the wider universe.

Center for Ethical Leadership (CEL) is a national nonprofit that cultivates leadership and the capacity to advance social change. We support the individual, institutional, and community transformation necessary to create healthy, just, and inclusive communities. Our core approach is to convene people with diverse perspectives—especially those historically excluded – and work together to develop and carry out change initiatives that improve the community. We invite people to reach across boundaries, build trust, and lead from their core values.

Peacemaking and Healing Initiative
The Center for Ethical Leadership (CEL) launched a peacemaking and healing initiative in the Seattle region in 2012. In partnership with many communities and institutions, this initiative is committed to practicing peacemaking principles and utilizing peacemaking circle process to cultivate healthy, just, and inclusive organizations and communities. CEL serves as a hub and backbone organization to develop the capacity of people to bring peacemaking and healing to their relationships and communities. CEL regularly offers introductory peacemaking circles and keepers' training and brings together past participants and keepers to practice and share learning.
