This week we lost a great peacebuilding visionary and pioneer, Raymond Shonholtz. I, along with many others, lost a friend, teacher, partner and mentor. As founder of Community Boards, Ray practically invented the modern community mediation center — transforming the idea from a quasi-court apparatus to full-service hub for community dialogue, intergroup conciliation, and peer mediation — using mediators who reflect the diversity of the community.

I never knew Ray, but your post gave me a very colorful image of the man and his genius. Thank you, Brad. You were lucky to have known him and we are all fortunate for having been touched by his life and work.
Very nice, Brad. Thanks for the vivid tribute.
Thank you for this, Brad. I appreciate the humor and how you paint the picture of Ray’s unique & beautiful character. Warmly, Darlene Weide (ED, Community Boards)
Beautiful, Brad. Great picture of Ray.
