The Need for PCR INC.
The concept of “Promoting Conflict Resolution, Inc” has been a thought of ours since 2000. Sometimes families just need guidance and directions to assist them once they’ve been affected by a traumatic experience that caused them to get involved with the police.
In 2016 and 2017 a total of 1,950 individuals were shot and killed by police.In 2017 there was a lot of turmoil between the police and the black community.It’s important to be apart of the message to arm the community with information that would cause them to be apart of a solution and not part of the problem of society.
We Want to Be Apart of the Solution!
Hence the birth of “Promoting Conflict Resolution, Inc” a board of professional individuals came together with the same concept to help families become productive citizens. It’s important not only to give families information but to make sure the information they are given they understand it. The board of “Promoting Conflict Resolution, Inc” wanted to begin to empower families with education and technology to maintain healthy living.
It’s imperative for families to have resources available to them in the area that is reachable and realistic. Promoting Conflict Resolution, Inc” pride themselves in giving the families in the community of Boston the tools necessary to maintain a healthy strong family Unit. If the family unit is healthy and strong then young people will learn how to resolve conflicts in a non-violent manner.
