Dispute Resolution Center | Mediation Services Ann Arbor, MI
Where Conflict Meets Solution.
Bridging US 23 is an initiative developed by The Dispute Resolution Center (DRC) in collaboration with The Association for Youth Empowerment (AYE). It is dedicated to transforming the way the people of Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and the surrounding counties relate to one another.
Bridging US 23 was founded on the belief that when people unite for the greater good, positive change is inevitable. Our ultimate goal is to connect communities, inspire compassion and take action to call forth the beloved community.
The Unity walk was born out of a Bridging 23 restorative community circle and has been spearheaded by community members since 2017.
It was built on the foundation of taking action and bringing public visibility and conversation about the inequities between the Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor communities
