Support Honoring Dayton Mediation Center in the 2021 Miami Valley Peace Heroes Walk




We desperately need Mediation, not conflagration.


Catherine Queener

Cherise Hairston and Arch Grieve are gifted mediators. Cherise is also on the board of directors for Dayton International Peace Museum! Arch did his MA thesis on the impact of nonviolent movements. Peace!



The MVUUF Right Relations committee has selected the Dayton Mediation Center as our Peace Hero.  Specifically, we want to honor Cherise Hairston and Arch Grieve, who served as a valuable resource for the congregation in resolving conflicts through a series of listening sessions.

The City of Dayton established the Dayton Mediation Center in 1987 in an effort to ease the impact of community conflicts on public resources. The Center has become a trusted resource as one of the oldest and most robust conflict intervention resources in the country for those wishing to engage conflict constructively.

The Dayton Mediation Center intervenes in more than 1,000 conflict situations annually. The Center’s services have been utilized by residents, neighborhood organizations, businesses, employers and employees, schools, law enforcement agencies and court systems.
