Like most citizens, we are concerned about excessive partisanship and polarization in politics and government. The EMPO Project was established to support the election of mediators and others who publicly advocate interest-based dispute resolution on their campaign websites. We believe that having more mediators in public office, who possess knowledge and skills for non-adversarial resolution of differences, will result in better political processes and better government.
See the current list of endorsed candidates. Anyone who knows of a candidate for elected office at any level (local, state, or national) who meets the criteria for endorsement is encouraged to send details, including the candidate's campaign website URL, to empo AT hrd200 DOT com.
Press — Media representatives are requested to cover the EMPO story as important and current political news. Interviews may be arranged by email: empo AT hrd200 DOT com.
How to help? — The EMPO Project does not accept financial donations. However, here's how to help elect mediators to public office. Please follow ElectMediators on Twitter.
The EMPO Project encourages everyone to learn about mediation, if not for professional advancement then for the personal benefits of being skilled in communicating about differences and effectively resolving conflicts in the important relationships in your life:
