PHILLY TRUCE, the non-profit behind the PHILLY TRUCE APP, will begin training Mediators to respond to potentially violent conflicts across the city.
The app, which launches May 1, 2021, puts Philadelphians with knowledge of potentially violent conflicts in direct contact 24/7 with trained mediators. It is designed to empower the Philadelphians most affected by gun violence to give and receive community support around nonviolent conflict resolution.
Starting March 13th, 2021 there will be six Zoom sessions covering Mediation Theory, Mediation Practice, Crisis Development and Conflict Resolution. The final two Saturdays (April 24th and May 1st) will consist of in-person sessions (outdoors per Covid regulations) where participants will take part in mock mediations
