About Us

Resolving Conflict. Peacefully.

At Western Justice Center, we believe that conflicts can afford opportunities for learning and growth.

Hon. Terry J. Hatter
Board Chair, 2009-2011


The mission of Western Justice Center (WJC) is to increase the opportunity for peaceful conflict resolution and displace the power of violence in our society. We design, implement, evaluate and promote innovative methods of conflict prevention and resolution for children, communities, and courts.

WJC envisions a society in which conflicts are transformed into opportunities for learning and growth.


WJC promotes greater understanding about conflict resolution in schools and communities.  

We do this in partnership with Encompass through programs to build safe and inclusive schools and by designing conflict resolution programs focused on improving police-community and non-profit and local government workplace relations.
