Event Description

Community Mediation, Inc. honors the contributions of those peacemakers with the annual Charles A. Pillsbury Peacemaker Award, named for one of New Haven’s most prominent peacemakers. The ceremony will take place on Wednesday, May 27 at 5:30 p.m. at the New Haven Lawn Club.  From 6:30 to 8:00 p.m., we will have a viewing and discussion on “The Billboard From Bethlehem”.

This year, we are honoring Bruce Barrett.  Mr. Barrett graduated from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1985 with a B.S. in Applied History and Industrial Management. After graduation, he spent one year as a Missionary in Punta Arenas Chile, teaching English and running the youth group at Saint James Episcopal Church. He returned home to join and build the family billboard business (Barrett Outdoor) while learning about peace making.


In 2006 he created the www.IWagePeace.Org web site as a primer on active non-violent peacemaking. After receiving the Living Waters Award from the Connecticut Conference of the United Church of Christ for working with youth and promoting peace and diversity, he decided to create a film about peace making in Palestine. The Billboard from Bethlehem, his first film, has won four awards, including the Mondavi Award for Peace and Cultural Understanding at Napa Sonoma. In Tel Aviv it received an ovation from an audience of over 250 people, at the Spirit Film Festival. 


Please join us in recognizing the contributions of this peacemaker, as well as supporting Community Mediation’s own peacemaking work, by sponsoring this year’s event.

Putting Faith in a Local—and Ingenious—Solution for Affordable Housing

LISC’s New York Land Opportunity Program is helping churches and other mission-driven groups scale the steep learning curve that leads to developing affordable housing on their land. Three years in, the effort is making promising inroads into the city’s affordable housing crisis, and inspiring similar initiatives in communities across the country.

The Good Word on How Faith-based Groups Are Turning Land into Homes

An in depth feature on details how mission-based groups, especially churches, are skilling up to turn their under-used land into affordable housing and other facilities their communities desperately need. And LISC initiatives in San Antonio, New York and the Bay Area are leading the charge. “Churches really feel the impact of the displacement issue in their communities,” says LISC Bay Area’s Laurel Engbretson in the article. “There’s a higher level of energy to get involved in this, because they understand the larger market context.”

We Got Next: Playing Hoops and Transforming Lives

This weekend’s NBA All-Star Game is a reminder of the transformational power of basketball, and the many ways that LISC promotes a game that can spark opportunity and help heal communities all across the country.
