This organization was formed in the wake of a terrible hate crime that left people all over West Virginia shocked and feeling powerless. Those of us from other parts of the state watched as this community came forward with positive action. As a mediator, dedicated to promoting understanding and peaceful resolution of conflict, I was impressed and encouraged to see the way Marion County made collaboration the center of their efforts to educate themselves and their neighbors about living beyond tolerance. I have been asked to speak at their Building Bridges of Respect Conference many times, and have always been eager to donate my time. The crown on their work, for me, is their full and respectful involvement of the youth of their community. This not only recognizes the dignity of their young people in the present, but is an investment that will yield benefits to us all.

As a certified prevention specialist and someone who is very familiar with asset based community development I am quite impressed with the work of Communities of Shalom in Marion County, WV. I have participated in their Global Gathering, which celebrates the local nationalities and diversity of our area. I have been part of their Building Bridges conference which allows people of various backgrounds to learn more about community collaboration. I recognize them as an 13 year old organization committed to systemic and sustainable change.
