Community Mediation Maryland's vision is for every Maryland resident to have awareness of and access to affordable, high-quality community mediation services.
Our Mission: CMM advances collaborative conflict resolution in Maryland through educating the public, providing training and quality assurance, conducting research, and creatively applying mediation to social challenges.
When people are able to have mediation before they are released from prison, it decreases recidivism. This Re-Entry Mediation service is available in MD prisons, but in order for families to have mediations with incarcerated persons, they need transportation to the prisons. For some, it's a trip they can't afford. On 11/14 and 11/15, Lorig Charkoudian, Executive Director of Community Mediation Maryland, ran the distance of the trip to prison, to raise money for those families.
