It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of our friend and colleague Raymond Shonholtz. Ray was a visionary within community mediation from its earliest days and a tireless advocate of our capacity to mindfully engage one another with compassion and understanding.
In 1976, Ray founded and served as President of San Francisco’s Community Boards, one of the first neighborhood and school mediation program in the United States. In 1989, he founded Partners for Democratic Change, an international organization committed to building sustainable capacity to advance civil society and a culture of change and conflict management worldwide. He continued to inspire these and other fields by championing innovative applications of peace, contributing peering scholarly articles, and selflessly sharing his time and wisdom with colleagues.
