About Conflict Resolution Day
The Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR)’s Board of Directors adopted a resolution designating the third Thursday in October annually as Conflict Resolution Day in order to increase public awareness about conflict resolution and its many benefits. As part of this recognition effort, ACR has coordinates its efforts with other conflict resolution organizations and reaches out to local, state and international groups to build interest in holding local celebrations in conjunction with Conflict Resolution Day.
