The Conflict Center

A nonprofit organization

At The Conflict Center, we see conflict as an opportunity to build and deepen relationships and solve problems creatively. Through trainings and classes, participants expand empathy and translate anger into productive actions and behaviors. Join us and become a peacemaker in your home, school and community.

For over 30 years The Conflict Center (TCC) has forwarded its mission to prevent physical, verbal and emotional violence by partnering with individuals and communities to shift perceptions, attitudes and behaviors through education and skill-building. 

"I'm trying to be courageous and realize that conflict is not negative. Instead thinking 'How can we figure this out together?'"
-Adult Participant from "Addressing Conflict and Anger Effectively" Class.

"I think that literature and storytelling is one of the best ways to build compassion in children. Reading for Peace aligns with the skills we have been learning and practicing in the classroom." - Teacher with Reading for Peace Program

"I've been able to develop a relationship with my mom because of some of the skills I learned in here. It's not perfect, but it's better." - School-Based Youth Class Participant

"I have noticed a 100% transformation of my students over the school year! The children are kind to each other, and they demonstrate peaceful problem-solving skills on a daily basis." - Teacher, Place Bridge Academy

"I've learned to have the general thought that in all conflicts the goal is to achieve a healthy resolution. It may not happen, but having that goal helps prevent me from being defensive or adding fuel to the conflict." -Adult Participant from "Addressing Conflict and Anger Effectively" Class.

“Next time I experience conflict, I will express how it has impacted me in the form of affective statements. I will be mindful of my role in the conflict and try to collaborate to resolve the conflict by healing harm.” -Teacher from Restorative Practices Workshop.


The Conflict Center equips people with practical skills to navigate, transform and embrace everyday conflict.

Background Statement

The Conflict Center began in 1987 as a grass-roots community-based organization in the basement of its founder, Elizabeth Loescher, and incorporated as a non-profit in 1988. In 1993, TCC moved out of Liz’s basement and was housed in a space at Clare Gardens, a HUD housing complex, for five years. In 1998, TCC’s current building in the Sunnyside neighborhood was donated by the Piton Foundation and fully renovated. The building space is currently shared with three other nonprofit tenants and several therapists. Over the past 30 plus years, The Conflict Center has served over 200,000 people by providing the skills needed to manage conflict and anger without violence. Committed to providing at least 50% of its services to clients with low-income life experiences, The Conflict Center believes that people of all socioeconomic levels should have access to skills to reduce violence.
