Re: Proposed National Mediation Policy Act (NMPA) at MediationAct.org
The NMPA policy statement is educational and aspirational, initiating a national policy preference that protracted disputes be resolved by voluntary mediation, rather than litigation, lack of resolution or violence. The full policy statement is as follows:
It is the policy of the United States that, when two or more individuals or entities are in protracted dispute, it is preferable that such disputants actively and voluntarily take part in solution-seeking mediation, rather than allowing the dispute to remain unresolved or result in costly litigation, continued conflict, and elevated risk of violence.
This policy statement is endorsed by the leading national mediation organizations in the U.S., including the National Association for Community Mediation (NAFCM), the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR), the Academy of Professional Family Mediators (APFM), and Mediators Beyond Borders (MBB).
Mediate.com – the most visited dispute resolution site in the U.S. and world – is leading the NMPA initiative. The easiest way to indicate your campaign’s support (or not) for the proposed NMPA and your campaign comments is below!
