Christopher Fitz is the Executive Director of the Center for Community Peacemaking. The Center has been creating a culture of peace in Lancaster and beyond through restorative justice practices like:
- Victim-Offender Conferencing brings together those harmed by crime with those who offended to “make things right.”
- Making Peace offers youth and their parents an opportunity to practice healthy communication with their peers and each other.
- Peacemaking Circles help to transform conflict.
