NEACR's Spring Program is held annually at a location within reach of the organization's members throughout New England. Each year there is a presentation and Q&A session facilitated by a keynote speaker from the field of conflict resolution. 

Repairing Our Nation's Divides: Insights From Two Ventures In Immersive Dialogue is the title and theme of the 2019 Spring Program, which will feature comments by and a discussion with Dr. Paula Green, Professor Emerita at the School for International Training in the US, and Founder and Senior Advisor at the Karuna Center for Peacebuilding.

Following the 2016 presidential election, Dr. Green turned her focus from international work to addressing political divides in the United States. Engaging communities antagonistic to each other because of their political allegiances, she and other residents of her hometown of Leverett, MA, co-created Hands Across the Hills. Modeled on her international work, this 2017-2018 project featured extended dialogues and cultural exchanges between groups from Massachusetts and Kentucky. In October 2018, Dr. Green received the first ever Alliance for Peacebuilding award dedicated to U.S. peacebuilding, recognizing her work in Leverett, MA with Hands Across the Hills.

For a glimpse into the work of Dr. Paula Green, check out this video from BBC titled, One Thing Americans Find Hard to Talk About (http://tiny.cc/mlo43y) and this article published in The New York Times in February 2019 (http://tiny.cc/kvo43y). 

This program is being co-sponsored by the Leadership and Negotiation program at Bay Path University, which is directed by Joshua N. Weiss, Ph.D.
