To promote more civil communities and encourage constructive problem-solving, Gov. John Hickenlooper, the General Assembly and 26 cities and counties proclaimed October as Conflict Resolution Month in Colorado.

Hickenlooper said, “In Colorado, we do things differently; we work together, we collaborate … .”

In its eighth year, Conflict Resolution Month promotes broadening perspectives and using collaborative options to solve disputes.

In October 2011, 2,000 Coloradans took part in 35 Conflict Resolution Month events. Events this year include two conferences, various workshops and classes, a photo exhibit and a poetry slam.

Annually, Conflict Resolution Month suggests a book and a movie to help demonstrate productive alternatives. This year’s book is “Teaching Peace: A Restorative Justice Framework for Strengthening Relationships” by Beverly Title, a Colorado author.

This year’s movie is “Bully,” directed by Lee Hirsch, a Sundance- and Emmy-award-winning filmmaker.

Conflict Resolution Month supporters include a coalition of 70 organizations, municipalities and individuals.
